Summer telepathy

Today’s steamy hot weather and the noise of cicadas reminded me of a Japanese summer.


When I was hanging the washing I started to think about one of my hot summer memories with my best friend Ryoko. A few summers ago, on a ridiculously hot day, Ryoko and I decided to go to a swimming pool to get cool. The pool was located on the outskirts of Tokyo where I had never been before, so even just getting there was like an excursion. There was a wave pool and a flowing pool, and we tried every single water slide.


As I was reminiscing my summer adventure I received an email – from Ryoko’s husband, Ton-kun. Ryoko had a baby! I’m so happy and feel so lucky to have been thinking about her at that moment.
