I like LA. I’ m satisfied with life in LA for last two and half years.
On the other hand, I understand the feeling of “New York State of Mind” by Billy Joel.
I changed the relics of my favorite song as I feel recently.
“Some folks like to get away, take a holiday from the neighborhood, hop a flight to Miami Beach or to Hollywood.
But I’m talking a Keihan-train on the Kamogawa River line.
I’m in a Kyoto city of mind.
I’ve seen all the movie stars in their fancy cars and their limousines, been high in the Rockies under the evergreens.
But I know what I’m needing.
And I don’t want to waste more time.
I’m in a Kyoto city of mind.
It was so easy living day by day out of touch with the wabi and sabi.
But now I need a little give and take.
The San-Kei Sports, the Nikkei News.
It comes down to reality.
And it’s fine with me because I’ve let it slide.
Don’t care if it’s South district or on riverside.
I don’t have any reasons.
I’ve left them all behind.
I’m in a Kyoto city of mind."
