Picking up….

… a famous Sweaty person at the airport. It's her first time in Japan, I hope she will like it!

Eating a rose

“Here, then, is a great mystery. For you who love the little prince, as for me, nothing in the universe can be the same if somewhere - we do not know where -a sheep we have never met has or has not eaten a rose.” 
― Antoine de Saint-Exupery

A few posters downtown

Fireworks are a summer thing, so I suppose this was an attempt at humour but I didn't get it. And why is this gaijin santa looking so sad?

Tino Rossi

There will be a Mailbox post soon, but I wanted to share those on the Suitcase anyway because they are so beautiful. They are part of a fantastic package I received this week from David Stafford. All original book covers for Tino Rossi song scores and lyrics (I don't really know how to call them in English, in French it's "partitions") .
I'm strolling down the memory lane again because (and David knows that) my grandma and grandad used to listen to Tino Rossi and were singing along. I particularly remember "Petit Papa Noel" :-))
This was a very nice present from David, very thoughtful of him and very touching.

… and a little gem for you:

Gymnopédie For The Proverbial Morning Toast #5

* The two lines in French are borrowed from J-J Goldman

Pfiuuuuu, done with the last one of this series. The exercise was getting harder and harder with every new piece. But five is a good number, enough to make a boekie out of them!
