Tokyo Sky Tree – Olympic 2020 Candidate Campaign Light Up

25 August 2013

During this period starting from today till September 7, 2013, Tokyo Skytree will light up 5 colours in a night.

This is due to Tokyo 2020 Olympic Candidate Campaign and the light up will be started normally around 6.30PM and keep changing colour till 8.00PM to be a constant golden colour.

I try to collect many light ups of this highest tower but for sure it seems impossible. This tower lighting can be changed to any campaign easily and it’s quite challenge to the photographers for light up hunting 🙂

The one I really need is Christmas Tree colour one last year 😦

Let’s cheer up Tokyo to be the Olympic host on 2020 😀

he’s handy, stout, just barely tame
Doesn’t have a pedigree
just some sagebrush in his mane.”

100% Local: Summer Tomato & Corn Soup

tomato-corn-soupFrom a wonderful trip to San Francisco & wine country for the happiest of reasons, my friend Melissa’s 50th birthday, to an unexpected and bittersweet trip to Boston for the saddest of reasons, August has sped by in a whirlwind of trains, planes and automobiles, good times with old friends and new, many laughs and not a few tears.

I’m well behind on the season’s preserving, but in between trips I did manage to whip up this fabulous light, summery soup, saving a big pile of CSA vegetables from the compost pile and freezing just a bit of summer’s abundance for the winter ahead. I highly recommend you do the same. If you need me, you can find me outside in the sunshine, savoring the last few days of August in New York. Happy Sunday, all.

Broken Light Collective

Photo taken by contributor Cassandra, a 32-year-old woman from New Zealand who lost her older brother to suicide when she was 14-years-old. Beyond being sad and shocked, she was very angry. She remained angry about what she considered his ‘weak and stupid choice’ for most of her life, until last year, when she suffered her first bout of true depression. Suddenly she realized how he must have felt – how heavy the burden of daily life can become and how distorted your perspective can be. Thankfully she came through it but she is grateful for that dark time because it helped her gain empathy and compassion for friends who still struggle daily with depression. She runs two blogs – My Life is My Message that shares stories of inspiring everyday people who are trying to make their world a better place, and The Wonders where she showcases photos and stories…
