For the past two weeks I’ve been in Japan, planning and attending my grandmother’s memorial. It was a busy time; full of grief, little moments of happiness, and being so full I could hardly breathe.
I haven’t been to Japan for three years, and while the timing was bittersweet, I’m glad I went back.
Most of these photos are of the temple grounds we divided my grandmother’s ashes at, but I hope it’ll give you a glimpse as to what I’ve been up to.
