sometimes words aren’t needed, just stamps (postal & inky) and strategic bits of washi tape
“The present is an (un)finished #postcard… ergo: added a few more decorations before finally went into the box (created while holding my sleeping toddler in lap at a coffee shop)
This one went off to Vancouver to be delivered to someone who is sitting next to me at the time at gloss coffee shop and gallery.
Accompanied in the mail drop (i arrived at the postbox just as the pick-up was happening like some kind of fortuitous timing) along with a few to mutual friends and one to our own house (yes I do that frequently for ¥70 of thrills).
Thanks for kind words, letters and picking up the phone recently.
Got out of the #mecfs ditch for a couple of days / now back in bed *crashmode* while family (w/ visiting nephew) is heading off to a sword museum outing i planned. Feeling super low but hey, at least my toes are painted cute #selfcare

OK, I need to disappear again, eye fatigued after a :20 reentry. Ice bags on neck, coffee and water on hand.
You are all more beautiful than you were yesterday if that’s even possible.
I’m going to pretend I’m a boxer who took a few hits in my right eye but really it’s some kind of weird eye infection or something… I don’t know anyway ~ I probably shouldn’t post this but took a photo to see how eye looked (because I don’t have a mirror here in bed)
Was from the house to the ophthalmologist, checking in, inspection, correction, prescription, filled and home in 42 minutes…
Pretty much back to normal now whatever that is. Or maybe I should take one more photo?
Yep infection, eyedrops in, changed all the pillows sheets and towels. Keeping it covered with tissue as well. Big day at the hospital tomorrow so hopefully will have some improvement tonight
Because I over document all the tiny incidents of my life, and have far too much time spent in bed with a chronic and complex illness… It means, I made a collage of my eye infection over this last week. It’s getting better, grateful for a great medical system here in Japan, eyes are very delicate (I’ve spent enough on ophthalmologists and optometrists and opticians to pay for orthodontists for their children and possibly a boat for their retirement) but super glad for good medical care (oh, did I say that already?)
I’m not sure why I’m sharing this but why do I do any of this.
Anyhow, take care of your peepers (and dig my sweet track suits and pajamas)
PS for historical record. Also noting that face recognition on my phone robot doesn’t work with this Popeye look
The postal services of the world create a magnificent neural network of sorts – dispatches leaping across borders, bypassing squabbles and avoiding incidents // due to creative time-tested systems and intrepid workers.
Some countries still don’t have air mail connections with Japan at this time, so, sending a letter envelope by surface post… Wonder how long it will take to find its destination? Hope this envelope has it sea legs.
All together dispatches today went to Sri Lanka, India, and the usual, Japan, USA and Canada.
