Take Care

I see movement high in a tree on the hill above my house. "Monkey!" I excitedly shout, until I notice a large hawk fly out of the tree and drift over the hill. Soon it returns, then immediately sets off again. Over the next ten minutes, this scene repeats a dozen times. It must be feeding its young. On one approach, I notice the long body of a snake in its beak, wriggling to escape along earth that's no longer there. Nature's warning for me to watch my feet while hiking from now on.

On the turntable: えま& 慧奏, "天地の歌”
On the nighttable: Haruki Murakami, "after the quake"
