A friend of mine went to
yesterday and sent back this gorgeous photo. For the Japanese, it's very important what a person dreams about during their first night's sleep in a new year (called hatsuyume). Some put pictures under their pillows in an attempt to influence their dreams and their luck. The first desired dream is about Mt. Fuji , the second is about hawks and the third is about eggplant! I don't know why! My first dream in the new year was about that same friend moving away, which he will be doing in a week. Abandonment is certainly not a preferred dream to start off the new year. I don't need a picture under my pillow to tell me that. I don't even want to know what that means 2006 holds for me!
