my white room


i never saw a moor—
i never saw the sea—
yet know i how the heather looks
and what a billow be.

almost completing or starting all over again








our carrot ikebana 

or i just see japan in everything even more often 
than i usually do. this spring we will see all of it, 
blooming and falling petals, spring in my japan. 














filling the class with some exercises and finding 
myself concentrating on forgotten but beloved things.






сегодня м. строил башню и последние кубики поставил наоборот, 
сначала обрадовался, а потом посмотрел долго и поменял их, и улыбнулся
еще больше. все время смотрела на него, ему всего полтора года. такой 
хороший день наблюдения и приятной работы. и к. сказал, что настроение
у него сегодня доброе. полировали деревянный желудь и сердце в первый раз,
очень приятное дело. кажется, именно сейчас по-настоящему начинаю понимать
все про уроки и воспитание, давать пространство всем и себе.
