Philadelphia skyline from Grays Ferry Avenue, southwest Philly, March 2, 2007

I took a much-needed break from the ordinary Friday and headed to Philadelphia, my home from 1985-1995.
When I left Philadelphia nearly a dozen years ago, I took an even bigger break from the ordinary and moved to Japan.
I've been thinking a lot lately about breaking with the ordinary.

Is there any way you could go on a few brief trips - maybe somewhere new or back to Japan?

What a nice blue sky!
I hope you enjoyed your break in Philly. Please have the strong mind against the illness.

Brief trips are fine, but I'm reminded of the quote by Dogen Zenji: "If you cannot find the truth right where you are, where do you expect to find it?"
But, yes, I would like to make more of my weekends, and a vacation from work would be nice once the weather warms.

Hi Kozy,
Thanks as always for your encouragement.
