I was just talking to somebody and they told me they were on their way to Japan for two weeks.
„Have you ever been to Japan“ they asked?
„No“ I replied, „but I have a friend who is a real Japanophile and he even took part of his holiday while there to spend some time clearing up after The Tsunami and Fukushima“ I said proudly.
„I helped as well“ they said with even more pride because they had themselves done something.
„Oh?“ I asked
„Yes, I sent some crystals, they help with cleaning up as well“ …
Mental sound of my brain crashing gears, trying to engage reverse.
I look again, sometimes I’m wrong and you *can* tell a book by its cover..
Even as I write my mind is telling me it has been ambushed. I was made so unsure I had to check if I should write „its“ or „it’s“. I keep being presented images of Amethysts and Quartz Crystals dressed in overalls pushing a street cleaner’s cart or cleaning the air by inhaling „radiation“.
