number 600

this is my 600th post
omg as my students will write (once only)
over at the new place, down the road a piece.
 this is one of my new neighbors
 isn't this one magnificent?
and i recently got this:
 a fine package
from asao shimura
who taught me japanese and pina papermaking
long ago
at carriage house
a day at bittersweet farm
sunshine cheeks
stretched muscles
dirt and bugs and worms
and happiness.
happy 600!
i am terribly long winded!
