Returning & Reorienting (戻りと変更計画)
Viewing the Zen garden at HCP. See more photos from this trip on ノート.
After over six weeks of exploring 日本, we're officially back in Metchosin to reorient ourselves toward the holidays and a rapidly approaching new year (正月). That being said, as we hinted in our last post, our virtual 旅 has been so rewarding and inspiring that we've decided to continue making periodic trips back across the submarine cable bridge which connects islands & digital lives through the 'thick' 太平洋.
Over the past few weeks, we've been busily preparing for the next phase of our collaborative endeavours as Hummingcrow & Co. We'll have an announcement to make in November with more details. But first...
We're headed to Japan, and we're taking Humm Hill with us!
~ Wait... wha?
That's right, Quinton – hold on to your head plume, because today we'll be traveling 7,000 km across the Pacific Ocean at near-lightspeed for a virtual stay in Japan.
Before overseas travel was put on pause this year, our grand plan for October was to visit Japan together for the first time. We had been practicing Japanese (日本語), trying out washoku (和食) recipes, discussing friends (友達) living there who we'd like to visit, planning our budget, and mapping possible routes & destinations. As things stand, there's no telling when this trip will actually be possible in the future – at least, physically... So that got us thinking: why not adapt to these circumstances and make the journey (旅) a different way?
Announcing: Irregular Updates
“Why have I been receiving less emails from you lately?” – Quinton
If you've been following us via email for a while, you may have noticed that you haven't been receiving nearly as many updates as you used to. This is actually not so much because we've been posting less frequently lately (though this is partially true) as it is that we've recently decided to shift our dispatch style to one which is, well, irregular!
