It was also great to run into a gal pushing 100 years old that we met at a party about three years ago. She was out and about at the event with her walker, since she lives in the Japanese seniors’ residence there, and we had a good long chat in Japanese, mostly Yumi and Yuki, with me following along as best I could.
Here’s a post about that convivial, multilingual, multi-generational potluck.
Throwback Thursday — me wearing a Goodtimers T-shirt, heading out for my #Burnaby south slope walk today. The Goodtimers was a jogging club founded by a friend of mine in Tokyo in 1988. That makes this T over 25 years old!
It’s a bit musty, but nothing a good sweat won’t, um, cure 🙂.
On my way down to my office I ran into this zen zone in our foyer. The calming force field pushed me back upstairs where I dumped my steaming cup of coffee in favor of a chipped stone mug of green tea.
I managed to make it into my office on my second attempt, but how am I going to get much work done when I pause to meditate each trip up or down the stairs?
Seriously, this is another lovely creation by Yumi, who comes up with something new every few weeks or months. Thank you!
While cleaning the garage today I ran across a brochure from a private kindergarten in Japan where I taught very basic English for many years. Yep, that skinny guy with lots of dark hair is moi, circa late 1980s/early 1990s. It was an extremely well-paying gig for just one morning a week.
