And almost winter…

2016 was a monster of a year. Muhammad Ali, David Bowie, Fidel Castro, John Glenn, Harper Lee, Arnold Palmer, Prince, Gene Wilder, Nancy Reagan, Natalie Cole, Alan Rickman, Paul Kantner & Signe Anderson, George Martin, Keith Emerson, Garry Shandling, Glenn Frey… So many. So many more…

Drink a toast to these departed.

And as for new beginnings? Well, we have 2017 and the Trump Era to look forward to.

First snow on Fuji-san. Seems like Tokyo skipped autumn this year. Might be a cold one.

“We wandered through quiet lands,
felt the first breath of snow.
Searched for the last pigeon,
slate grey I’ve been told.
Stumbled on a daffodil
which she crushed in the rush,
heard it sigh,
and left it to die.”

– Jethro Tull
