A moment of contentment

Hi, Everyone.

Finally, I planted all the seedlings.

The cantaloupes and honeydew seeds germinated this year.

So, I’m looking forward to eating them if they survive.

I don’t really like doing gardening.

(Yes, “Japanese are good at gardening” is a stereotype.)

but I love sitting under the cherry tree in my yard,

listening to the birds singing, and feeling the breeze on

my cheek, and writing my blog in my bare feet.

I think this is such a luxurious time for me.

It is a moment of contentment.


I love the energy of trees rather than water.



So, I’m really grateful that I can live here.

Living in the mountains, lots of different birds visit me.

I saw this bird the other day.

Rock Pegion

I thought I saw this bird when I was in Japan, but I saw this bird for the very first time here.

It’s called “Rock Pigeon”. It is 33 cm tall, and a wingspan of 71cm.

This Pigeon has red eyes and white eyelids, and she tilted her head a little and looked at me through the window. When she blinked, she looked sexy and pretty at the same time.

There was another pigeon that I saw a few years ago.


It’s called “Band-Tailed Pigeon” and, this one is 36 cm tall.

Steller’s jay,


He doesn’t like the newcomers, so he appeared suddenly from the bottom. He used “scare tactics” but, it didn’t work.

But the Blackbirds,

Brewer's blackbird

They didn’t care. They accepted the humongous pigeon as if they have nothing to be afraid of because the blackbirds are in the gang.

When I enjoy watching the birds, my cats make a weird sound and try to get the birds.

My cats are inside of the house, so there is no way that they can get to the birds but they keep making the noise.

Window Uriel

And probably the birds know this, so they come right in front of the window and tease my cats.

Then when I witnessed this, I couldn’t stop laughing.

I enjoy this chain reaction.


I hope you felt peace, even a little bit after reading my blog.

With gratitude.


Love and Peace





Mysterious encounter

Hi. Everyone.  I’m Keiko. I’m a Soul level animal communicator.

I experienced the incident that I never even imagined. I live in the very old house which was built in 1947. When I was sitting at the kitchen table, I heard a weird noise and that came from the wall. ガーン

I didn’t think anything of it, but I heard it again.ガーンガーンガーン

I looked around to find out where exactly it’s coming from.

This old house that I live in, In old days, there was no oven that you could just plug in and it works. People put some wood on the stove and then cooked on it.(wood stove) Therefore, there is a circular hole in my wall by the oven. It must’ve been where the chimney was. But we don’t need this anymore, so someone who used to live before us closed that hole by plywood. I just cover this ugly hole with a nice little picture.

When I looked around where this noise was coming from the second time, I witnessed this picture was vibrating. Yeah, I have the picture that vibrates now…

Thankfully, My hubby was home, so I told him what’s happening. And he says it must been the bird that fell down in the chimney. I grew up in the city, I just couldn’t believe what he said.ポーン

The chimney is so narrow that there is no space for the bird to fly up. If we didn’t do anything, this bird will be…..ゲッソリ

So, we decided to do something.

My husband took off the picture from the wall, Then started to break the plywood. While he is doing this, I closed all the door so that the bird wouldn’t go in. And the circular hole in the wall appears as if it was a black hole connected to another Universe…

We waited for a while but it was silence. We started to think Strange??? But I suggested to my hubby to wait for a little longer.


Suddenly, the little black bird appeared on the circle.

(Right one, brown female)

She was just chilling there and looking at us. I think she was strategically thinking the way out.

In my kitchen, there is a door, big window, and small window. Next to the door, there is a big window, And Tara三毛猫who became Youtube celebrity was sitting by the big window, Me, hubby and Tara, our eyes are locked on that blackbird.

Now here comes chaos.

I really didn’t see this coming.

That little bird is just chilling as if nothing was happening. Sitting comfortably on the edge of the circular black hole. Tara who is lost her patienceムキーstarted to walk toward the bird. The moment Tara moved, the bird flew toward a small window which was the closest to her. But this window has a screen duct-taped it from outside so that it’s not a quick getaway.

I screamed Tara’s nameびっくりand grabbed herガーン, while I put her in a different room and closed the door, Hubby was trying to break the screen open. But because the bird can see the outside through the window, she hit herself on the window several times.

These are happening in several seconds.

By the time I came back putting Tara in the different room, the little bird was safely out from the space between the screen that my hubby broke open.

Hubby was so excited and says that the little bird was so close, he could have almost touch it. He even said, “We saved the little life.”ラブラブ

I was happy too.

But also as a woman, after all this debacle, I knew I have to clean up everything. Fill the hole again and vacuum. Hubby had to grab a ladder to duct-tape the screen again. It was hard.

But in spite of all that, I was happy with the end result.

Blackbirds are eating my bread that I baked.

Find a stillness in the chaotic situation.
