All the pictures are beautiful and many inspire emotion. This one though, goes beyond the fantasy of the foreign beauty. The connection with the glance is a hyperlink into another world, one citizen’s day-to-day to that of the guest. I’ve seen that glance before, having spent a year working in Japan and in other travels in Asia.
It is a human moment.
You’ve written a poem, Karen. It is beautiful. Thank you.
Thank you for giving me the opportunity to write a poem on a day that will otherwise be spent recording student learning outcomes assessment! Right now that is my day-to-day but I am so happy to see you are travelling and living for a time in a beautiful city.
There can be poetry in student learning outcomes, too. If anyone can find it, I am sure you can. I am happy to say, however, there are things I don’t miss about working for a living.
