Cherry Blossom Girl

I love the film Lost in Translation. I feel so much for the character Charlotte. She isn't just lost in a new city. She is lost in a mental transit — hardly knowing what she is supposed to be doing with her life. I totally get that.
She tries knitting, writing, taking photos, listening to a self help tape. Exploring blindly, almost stumbling into situations. Nothing more literal for this stumbling than when she actually stubbed her toe.

I love this paper cherry blossom decoration. How do I make one?

What am I reading?

I pulled out an oldie from my book collection and am rereading Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, written by John Berendt.

What music am I listening to?

  • We Used to be Friends — The Dandy Warhols
  • Boys of Summer — Don Henley
  • Bette Davis Eyes — Kim Carnes
  • Crimson and Clover — Tommy James and the Shondells
