About Me

My photo
California born by a Cuban mother, married to a Japanese man, and have lived in Japan since 2004, minus one year living in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. I have friends and family in many places in the world. I dreamed of traveling to many distant lands, creating music and dancing to it, meeting interesting people, and discovering treasures in the most unlikely of places.

Cicadas

From Sofia's Myriad of Colors

The cicadas have been singing...
"meee, meeee, meeee..." late into the evening.
They are so pretty, with their delicate wings, and their three ruby eyes on their heads.
I really love them.

Cicadas spend one, passionate week flying around, mating, and making a lot of noise. Then they die.
But before that week, they have been underground for a number of YEARS! Depending on the species, 3, 7, even 14...
These cicadas were acting shy...
