* the cold part *


Yokohama outdoor ice skating rink.

Our friend Nori invited us here today. The rink was tiny but the setting was beautiful, and it was really fun to be in an outdoor rink (a first, for me). If you know me well, then you can imagine that I was almost euphoric, taking this all in. Look at the way the rink reflects the sky, the light shines on the brick buildings, the way the color in people’s clothing stands out against the white. The skates are bright red. The people here are just enjoying themselves. Lovely.
