We are taking things very slowly as we get adjusted to the Yakushima time. One small activity a day... and rest is mostly filled with a lot of downtime... journaling, writing postcards, making a maze for each other on papers and walking around the neighborhood.
Last night I was journaling on my Hobonichi... and literally nothing came out of my brain. Yes. I was tired... but I think my mind was and is still going through the emptying process. Having much needed distance from things I contemplate about Baum-kuchen on a day-to-day basis when we're in Los Angeles. So many things I have been thinking and wondering about seem so small when we're here and it has been a great process to come up with new ideas, strategies and perspectives.
