Quiche

Quiche to me is like calculus to a 2nd grader.

My Hero

JP:  You're my hero for today.
CL:  I am?
JP:  Yes, because you faced great challenges, obstacles and setbacks and did not surrender.

Two Poems



Ki no Tsurayuki

Hito wa isa
Kokoro mo shirazu

Furusato wa
Hana zo mukashi no
Ka ni nioi keru


The depths of the hearts
Of humankind cannot be known.
But in my birthplace
The plum blossoms smell the same
As in the years gone by.

On the hill which is seen from my home,
I gather warabi or bracken
which my husband likes.

It's fun to go early in the morning just after a rain
when the wild plants have sprung up like mushrooms.

Domain Name

You are a rare and exotic creature; you shouldn't hide behind a boring URL.

My Treasure

あなたの存在は、私の人生の、宝物です。

JM 3/19/2007

The deeper that sorrow carves into your being, the more joy you can contain.
Is not the cup that holds your wine the very cup that was burned in the potters oven?
And is not the lute that soothes your spirit the very wood that was carved with knives?"
— Kahlil Gibran
The Prophet
