Gloomy Day, Sunny Plants

It’s raining pretty badly here in Okinawa. Much like San Diego, Okinawa’s rainy season hits around April or May, so the umbrellas have to come out. It gets pretty muggy (but if you say that to an Okinawan, magi (マギ) means “big” in Okinawan dialect). The dark clouds roll around and the gloom just settles into each class. But when I see flowers as beautiful as the one in the picture, I feel a little more happy. Though places as warm and tropical as Okinawa exist, when their brightness is lacking, a small piece of sun is all you need to warm up.
