Home Run

Lying down on the damp grass... in the middle of an empty baseball field...in Tokyo...at night

...and looking up at sky, is one of the most liberating experiences I have had in this country.

And I wasn't even drunk or stoned.

That sense of euphoria no drug can induce

I also never realized exactly HOW claustrophobic this concrete jungle makes one feel...until I walked into (read: sneaked into) the empty open field. Its like being able to breathe again, properly...without any inhibitions.

Thank you wide-open spaces...and the people who lead you there.
