Today it's sunny and comfortable, we have opened the window to let the autumn air into the rooms. And those old photos, the memories... Difficult to explain what I've felt all the while. Yes, nostalgia for the past, for the things we have lost many many years ago. But not only that. The complex, somewhat sad, quiet feeling.
Who do you think these small girls?
These are my older sister and myself. We are in the garden of the house where we'd lived in some city in the west part of Japan then - I believe I was 2 or 3 years old. This might be on the New Years Day for we were in Kimono(traditional dress) in this photo. And here is my grandfather with us, in the same garden. He must have been visiting us from his house in Yokohama(where I live in now, of course).
