A week-long one photo per day gratitude challenge inspired by the GUT community.
I love that you have a favourite tree and than can you visit anytime! I’m also in GUT community but since I’m doing my own art project, I haven’t been able to complete a challenge. Though I love your interpretation and your photos are beautiful of Tokyo - a place I hope to visit someday.
I love this! Wonderful read. May I ask - how long have you been living in Tokyo now? And do you speak Japanese? I have been to Japan once and my fascination for the country never left me. I hope to return one day...
I like the first photo a lot - It reminds me of Edward Hopper’s night time paintings.
This was very lovely to read and resonated with me. I have never been to Tokyo and live very differently but am grateful for the same exact things, for different reasons. Thank you for sharing the beauty of your words and photographs!
Beautifully written and inspiring. Thank you.🌿
I am sending you a quote that was shared in the GUT chat
from Mary Oliver:
If you suddenly and unexpectedly feel joy, don’t hesitate. Give in to it. There are plenty of lives and whole towns destroyed or about to be. We are not wise, and not very often kind. And much can never be redeemed. Still, life has some possibility left. Perhaps this is its way of fighting back, that sometimes something happens better than all the riches or power in the world. It could be anything, but very likely you notice it in the instant when love begins. Anyway, that’s often the case. Anyway, whatever it is, don’t be afraid of its plenty. Joy is not made to be a crumb.
Thank you everyone- for the Plenty!!
I really enjoyed reading your post. Your photographs are beautiful and the part about feeling safe in a big city is something I could truly relate to. Come in a join the drawing, I would say. I am not particularly good at it and I still have fun.
gorgeous! Thank you.
