Aside from books, I will start collecting mugs which I find aesthetically pleasing and could hold at least 14 oz. of coffee as I like copious amount of the brew. I will name each one of them. And now it starts... Mug Collection Number 1: Poseidon's Wrath! Origin: Miyajima Island, Hiroshima, Japan.

I think we all could use a picture of some warmth ☀️ in this icy cold weather ❄️
We waited for the gates to open at 9.30 am despite the slight drizzle and lack of umbrellas. It opened 5 mins ahead of time. We paid for our admissions and entered, unaware of the marvel awaiting inside. The garden was well curated with the meandering paths all leading to this Japanese temple facing a pond teeming with kois. Under the roof, I closed my eyes, emptied my mind, took a deep breath, and meditated. Nirvana.
