French cafe afternoon + a night on the 4th street

In the afternoon, I went to a french cafe, coco et olive.
Their sweets are fresh from the oven, the cafe was covered by rich, sweet smell.
I grab a window table and spend relaxing time.
After the cafe, I went for a walk to a beach, but in the middle way to the beach, I found a park I've never been. I was stay there while and reading a book.

In the night, I went to a bar on 4th street with my friend.
She is an University student and a lot younger than me.
Anyways, it was fun to talk, great girl's meeting.

Walking down on the main street

Yesterday was a beautiful sunny day, I went to my favorite coffee shop to wait my friend.She is one of my best friend and will move to the other city.

Luckly I could grab the table with great view.
When I came to the cafe before, the table was always taken by the other customer.
I was sipping bitter coffee,I like to add milk for the cofee usually, but I was feeling like to have it without milk.
Anyways she came and we walked down on the street.
Recently I didn't check the street, we found some cool new stores.

In the evening we went to an Izakaya with her husband.
Zakkushi is popular Japanese izakaya, their foods are so cool and good.
We had some drink and talked a lot -
I am sure I can meet them again sooner or later, but I felt missing them when I make a hug and said cheers.

A rich, quiet moment

I like to stay alone sometimes.
Since my boyfriend took a trip to abroad, I kind of enjoy to stay just by myself.
I took a short walk today and seat a quiet park and looked at ocean with music I choose for beach walking.
While stay there, some birds came to right on my front and they were singing.
I was covered by warm sunshine - that time made me super relaxing.

The white peony I bought yesterday is blooming tonight - at the dark room, the flower reflect night lights from a window, smells very nice.
I sat a couch and wanted to look at it for long time.

Beach walking, Peoney

Sometimes I am taking a long walk -

I went to beach walk today for finding inspirations and changing my mood.
Since I started to walk from my home,everything looks beautiful and smells, feeling different.
Probably when my mind has some space, I will get more inspirations.
Inspirations are like gifts from my regular life or somewhere I never know.

I saw somebody is doing amaging thing.

I found magic dragon boats.

I am looking forward to see his art on the walls, always -found new ones.

In a way home,I bought peoney and had a coffee.

Back to real life?

Since all dance and music performances are finished, I am trying to back to regular life.
Right before the performance, we(our group) had rehearsing as well as we can -
I felt like taking a trip to Bali while those weeks.
Anyways, I am back to work, back to listening music otherwise Gamelan(Balinese instrumental).

Musics mostly I like are kind of sad songs(sentimental but they must not be cheesy), always - it is since my childhood.
I like happy songs too but more I like those sentimental songs.

The song

In this morning, I reminded the song "let it be" by Beatles I don't know why - the song lyrics popped up in my brain and was stacking in my mind - suddenly I wanted to listen.
The Beatles songs were too standard for me and I wasn't interested in so much about them but recently I knew their songs and lyrics are very interesting.

Edward Gorey

"G" is for a man of his own shadows -
I found a book about interviews of Edward Gorey at an used book store.
I am still in the middle of reading, but already the book is inspiring me a lot.
Seems like his personality is like his illustrations.

Cherry trees

I think now Vancouver is the most beautiful season of the year, a lot of sunny days and flowers are blooming.

I like cherry trees, like to look at falling petals under the tree.
I took a walk around my place under cherry trees, it was like a dream in the middle of a meditation, the petals are falling like snow.
