Nikkei al descubierto: una columna de poesía

Appetite

This month we have some light and delicious, sweet yet evocative, precious to ephemeral moments through the words shared here by the lovely yogi and artist, Genie Nakano, who hails from the South Bay of Los Angeles, and by Jeff Tanaka, a friend I met a few moons ago over in Toronto. Jeff currently resides, in his words, “on Lekwungen and W̱SÁNEĆ Territory (Victoria, British Columbia).” Enjoy.
