Oakland, Cal?

BTW Lotus- would you be interested in writing a short piece about how and why you became a blogger. Details on my space. It might be a good networking thing and I am just plain interested.

y'all are getting so close that i'll give it to you:

it's the japan pavilion at the vienna international exposition... 1873!

it was displays like this one that made japanese gardens extremely popular, and soon they had spread across europe and the us, both in public spaces and in private homes.
