2018 April Kimono Part III

In Tokyo, hito-e (unlined) kimono season starts after the Kanda Matsuri, which occurs mid-May. However, this last week of April had summer temperatures around 28C, and all I wore were unlined cotton kimono; the Turquoise Check being the coolest of the bunch.

Star Wars the Last Jedi #Rants

Rant #1

Heroes do not destroy important cultural materials (Jedi sacred texts) or mountain monasteries.
(What do you think happened to the nuns when their monastery was destroyed? Exactly who is going to support them now?)

This is the work of anti-heroes and terrorists.
(Remember Bamiyan? A huge cultural loss.)

That these actions have been normalized as acceptable is troublesome indeed.

* NO, I did not miss that Rey retrieved the sacred Jedi texts


Rant #2

I expect my heroes and anti-heroes to be larger than life, and not whiney wimps.

*Check back, to be continued....
