What am I celebrating?

July 7, 2019

“This weekend is Tanabata (七夕, meaning “Evening of the seventh”), a Japanese festival celebrating the meeting of the deities Orihime and Hikoboshi. According to legend, the Milky Way separates these lovers, and they are allowed to meet only once a year on the seventh day of the seventh month. To celebrate, 3700 candles have been placed in front of Tokyo’s Zojoji Temple, curving their way to Tokyo Tower and creating an illusion of twinkling stars reaching up to the sky.”

  1. back when, in Huntsville, my parents threw a party at our house. There was a couple who spent the night. I remember the note that one of them sent in the next week about luminarios lighting the way. I believe artillery punch was served and yeah, my parents took their keys.

    I did those stairs in Seoul and in Chinhae.
