Mount Fuji and First Sunrise of the New Year. Woodblock print. About 1770’s, Japan, by artist Isoda Koryusai
I haven’t taken any pictures in a long time. I haven’t had luck with attempts to capture moments. I haven’t written my diary; words don’t fit these surroundings. Every morning I walk through a park full of old dead trees, a huge field of frozen flowers, and a bench. I’ve been out there, in many places with many people, but somehow these days leave no marks.
