Subway #Art in Taipei

Standing through the Storm

#Temple in #Taipei. The #cultural difference between temples mainland #China and #Taiwan was interesting. Taiwan had more varieties of blue, a lot more incorporation of ocean symbolism, and a lot of practicing believers in there praying. In China you have some believers pray, but it’s more like ‘while I’m here.’ In Taiwan the feel is that they normally come, and this is daily life.

Either way, the temples are gorgeous!

Falling Petals

Falling petals Art in the Taoyuan Airport in #Taipei. Very pretty!

I went out walking one mornung in spring ðŸŽ¼

‘By the river I went walking
When my troubles came to mind.
But I did not stop for them
And they could not catch up to me.’

This is the breath-taking park at #Arashiyama in #Kyoto Japan. My friends went to find the #monkey 🙈🙉🙊park at the top of the mountain, but I’m not a HUGE fan of monkeys up close – and – personal. So I just walked along the river. This day is one of my most precious memories. The atmosphere just soothes your soul ❤️.

Cherry Blossoms

Art in the temple & gardens of Sanjusangendo & Chishaku-in at the beautiful #Kyoto. Facebook reminded me of this trip in my memories today. I still say, if you could only visit one city in all of #Japan, go to Kyoto. Breathtaking history, culture, art, museums, temples, natures, modern. . . . I ❤️ Kyoto as much as I do Seoul (and that’s saying a lot!)

A Cloud of Flowers

Inappropriate Art

This was right in front of me at a clothing store. At First, I thought it was a #flower. . . ‘Oh, cute’. Then realized. . . . no those are panties. This is a statue of looking up a woman’s skirt. Exactly what the kids and teenagers walking around need to see in life! It wasn’t even an underwear store!!!
