#Travel to #Kyoto – I went out walking one morning in spring 🎼

6 Feb

‘By the river I went walking
When my troubles came to mind.
But I did not stop for them
And they could not catch up to me.’

This is the breath-taking park at #Arashiyama in #Kyoto Japan. My friends went to find the #monkey 🙈🙉🙊park at the top of the mountain, but I’m not a HUGE fan of monkeys up close – and – personal. So I just walked along the river. This day is one of my most precious memories. The atmosphere just soothes your soul ❤️.

#Art – Cherry Blossoms

2 Feb

Art in the temple & gardens of Sanjusangendo & Chishaku-in at the beautiful #Kyoto. Facebook reminded me of this trip in my memories today. I still say, if you could only visit one city in all of #Japan, go to Kyoto. Breathtaking history, culture, art, museums, temples, natures, modern. . . . I ❤️ Kyoto as much as I do Seoul (and that’s saying a lot!)

What the **** did I just hear?

4 Dec

Seriously. Working on a presentation on the economic impact of the Japanese Tsunami on their Economy. Stumbled across this video report from the time. Starting at 0:36 the CNBC report is just so horrific to listen to from an ethics standpoint.

Dude: “The human toll is much greater than the economic toll, and we can be grateful for that . . . . .”

Then the woman throws in: “and Oil is lower, so they say this is good news for the American economy.”

0_0 WHAT! What the H E double hockey-sticks did I just hear? Please tell me they did not just say that. What the every loving ***** ***** ***** Sorry, this just begs for some words I can’t say being a Christian woman. Who the heck cares about any of that when children were dying and a whole nation was under natural attack. I’m just . . no words. I’ve got no words.

“Take in long-lost, wartime art attributed to Chihiro”

by “The Japan News

The Yomiuri ShimbunThree long-lost paintings believed to have been produced by the popular picture book author Chihiro Iwasaki (1918-1974) are on display at her namesake museum in Tokyo.The works were discovered last year at the Nippon seinenkan (foundation of Japan-youth center) in Tokyo. One of the three works is making its public debut at the ongoing exhibition, titled “Commemorating 70 Years of Non-war — Chihiro’s Wish for Peace,” at the Chihiro Art Museum Tokyo in Nerima Ward.

The discovery was significant because many of the artist’s works created before and during World War II were lost in air raids.

“We want people to think about the war through Chihiro’s works, which were produced at a time when people were not allowed to freely create art,” said a museum official. . . . .

Art I Love – Japan of APH

“Japan of APH” by Jiuge

I wouldn’t recommend all of this artist’s work, some of it is risque and NSFW, but she does a great job with digital art and I love some of her more decent work like this.
