It is that time of year with that kind of weather.  The kind that makes any outfit inadequate for the job.  It is warm, but not quite enough.  It is cool but a heavy sweatshirt is too much and a light one too little.

Every day is a treat. Not the too sweet American variety.  It is the subtle sweetness of mochi, the light airiness of a fluffy cake.

Each day a subtle but noticeable change occurs. Blossoms appear, leaves emerge small and bright green.  The rain changes from heavy and gray to light and invigorating.
