What is it about this place that saps the spirit? Is it the heat and humidity? The fast pace of life, the efficiency, the commodification of creative content? The pleonastic ‘free gift,’ the sense of entitlement, the offense often taken? The less-than-subtle flavoring indicative of a lack of natural resources? The lack of solitude, anonymity, and space?

And when they become aware of a […]

More photos from a walk along the Yamanobe-no-Michi, after the rain. It was still too early in the season for flaming trees, but elsewhere, the orange was a-callin’. The Yamanobe trail is actually an ancient road that runs along the eastern edge of the Nara basin, at the foot of Mt. Miwa.
