Daily Life


It was already light when I woke at 4 a.m., but in lots of ways, it was also really dark, literally and figuratively.

We had powerful winds carrying rain clouds over the Japanese capital, casting a bleak pall. But the winds also ensured the rain held off.

And the YouTube algorithm picked up on a topic that touches a really raw nerve for me.

I won’t write about it here because Mrs. Kangaeroo doesn’t want me to use this blog for nasty topics, but watching what came up on my feed left me feeling dark, bitter and resentful.

Of course, the bleakest darkness is Monday morning! But it’ll be all right.
