I love waking up early…which can often be a challenge as I also love staying up late.  I love seeing the city come alive.    I love the days that bring you new beginnings and new starts in life.

There is a surreal calm to mega cities like Tokyo when the light begins to hit them but the streets are still relatively empty.   I love not knowing what the day will bring me.    How decisions I have made in the past will impact me today.

I love peaceful calm of a Jiyugaoka morning; the Dalloyau truck delivering the morning supply of fresh baked bread and french pastries, a single taxi sitting in the queue waiting for its’ first customer, the bus patiently waiting for passengers to awake.

The streets are empty except for me…

I love avoiding the madness that is commuting in Tokyo by riding the trains early…

I have no desire in being stuffed in the train…

Sometimes it is important to just take time in all the madness to sit down with a cup of coffee or tea and soak it all in…
