roses and raindrops

More from the rose garden at Kyu Furukawa Teien. There was a sudden shower while we were there but about 20 minutes or so later after the sky cleared up again, I had such fun taking macro photos of the raindrops.

    'Kafka on the Shore' is coming along really well. I'm really enjoying it. It's a pretty thick one but I'm about 3/4 of the way through now so hopefully I'll be able to finish this week.

  18. Nat, I just checked back over old comments because I remembered asking you about Amazon links. If you wrote me about that, it was eaten by Bell South (gotta do something about this email problem, ugh). If you still have an email to me in your sent files, could you forward it to my other email: bookfoolery (at) yahoo (dot) com, pretty please? TIA!!!
