The insomnia, writer's block, and run on my sanity continues. If this keeps up, felix's daily starfish and waffles is going to turn into exclusively a photo blog and the bear is going to fire me.
Kinkaku-ji (The Golden Temple), Kyoto, Japan. (2002). I used to live on the third floor. No, that's a lie. I lived on the second floor. Obviously, when I took this photo, I had no idea how to take good photos - note the unfortunately placed Japanese maple branch blocking the view of the pavilion. I also didn't own a very good camera ... it was a Kodak F300 APS. The Japanese love their lists, so from this picture I leave you with these three nuggets of wisdom: (1) gold is shiny (2) go to Kyoto for no other reason than because it's beautiful there, and (3) in the last four years, you've probably come alot farther than you give yourself credit for, so remind yourself of that once in awhile.
