I have been saving the " Kaiko" set since February with the intention to publish it with a favorite Japanese poem of mine. After what happened in Japan, I simply cannot. I can't talk about Japan and pretend what happened didn't happen. And I won't. I won't pretend it didn't affect me either.
Have you had a friend, who you got to know though a whole bunch of mysteriously coincidental circumstances that totally gave you the feeling of serendipity? For me that is my friend Polina, who I know almost 17 years now. It's unbelievable how life( or fate) gets it's way to separate us and then get us back together only to separate us again but for the major events in our life we have always been there for each other, and time and space never affected our relationship. I might not see her for 2 years and then when I talk to her it's like we've parted yesterday. That is why I am really, really sad and really really happy at the same time today.
