We went down to a kid’s Adventure park and was rewarded royally. This wasn’t just like your average park. They had bells and pipes and some sort of glockenspiel built inside!
I saw this odd instrument upon entering the park and immediately fell in love with it. Basically you lift the brass ball, let it go, and it would hit the pipe and make a note. Sadly, one of the pipes were broken and there wasn’t enough to do more than play “Mary had a little lamb” or “London Bridge” but I still had tons of fun seeing what I could do.
I made sure the brass balls were moving, my partner took the picture from my instruction.
CHILDREN OF THE WORLD / CHINA - As I travel around the world on various assignments, I never tire of taking photos of children. Not only are they so picturesque as only children can be, but they also represent a hope in them that can’t be found in any other type of images. In their joys and in their despair, in their riches and in their poverty, my heart goes out to them. I want to lift them up to the word and shout, “Look, this is the future! The future is in their hands!” I sometimes wonder, though, what kind of future will they have … I spotted this young girl at a park in Kunming, China. She was so full of joy and life playing tag and hide-and-seek with her young friends. It was a delight to watch her play!
Celebrated the first part of Karen’s birthday at Origami Sushi. It’s unfortunate I ran low on money and was unable to buy her much since she’s always getting me nice things… then again, she has a job, a steady income. Sigh. All I hope is that she enjoys the gifts I got her.
I also went on a late night stroll with a friend of mine tonight at a nearby park apparently called “Children’s Park”. No one else was present there, so it was nice and quiet. We stargazed, talked, laughed, and for a moment, I forgot all of my worries… I’m very happy and lucky to have a friend like him. Starry skies bring back good memories of a special person, the only times where nostalgia doesn’t lead to melancholy. The only problem I had was going back up the trail we came down from. Although the LED light on my iPhone brightened our path, it only made things much creepier and scarier walking back; the lighting and shadows constantly reminded me of Silent Hill.
This week has been busy. Fun, but busy. I find it astonishing how people can hang out with each other continuously without a day for a break. I’m dead tired and ready to go into seclusion playing Atelier Rorona, Resonance of Fate, Lucent Heart, and the piano.
