Moon Over Lake Biwa
This is the cherry that tops off a truly amazing week in Japan. After an eventfully long day, this celestial event immediately took me back out again — the Moon and Venus setting together. When I arrived at the lake shore, an old man was fishing while sitting on the rocks in the darkness. He was obviously content to send out another cast and we witnessed the spectacle together. Whether he caught anything tonight, or not, is another story. All I know at this minute is that I am very fortunate to know Japan as a deeply mysterious place, where synchronicity can have incredible positive flow within a culture of immeasurable rules, etiquette, and protocol.
