Chinzan-so Park
Originally uploaded by ash-man.

Blogging this from the Ashman’s flickr mainly because I like this photo (thanks Niket for a great day) but also because I am not able to post from my keitai due to a WP plug-in error.  I think it started as I suffered a SPAM-bot attack and then other WP errors just pulled down the site.

Well, I am back to semi-digital mode and not mo-blogging for a while.  I feel like I have just gone back to 2003… I should be back mo-blogging soon when I can figure out a good solution to this dilemna.

John with Alex Kerr

I was given a newsclipping today from yesterday’s Japan Times announcing the passing of John Toler, 75, a Zen abbot living in Ouda, Nara Prefecture whom I had met on a number of occasions and I enjoyed an email conversation stretching over a few years.

Here is the photo that tempted me from the Pizza Hut Side order menu....
Pumpkin pudding
Yes that is a real pumpkin delivered straight to your door. It looked so odd I HAD to order it to see it for myself.
