To welcome a prosperous new year, we at Mimilocco has started a year-end cleaning.
The hardest cleaning spot is the accumulated fallen leaves in the lateral groove in front of our car-parking lift, which takes two men to work on it.
Those fallen leaves went through the grating to sit in a row back to back.
I hope that, as it is often told in a Japanese fairy story, a raccoon or a fox transforms them into “koban” or former Japanese oval gold coins.
As, unfortunately, my dream was not materialized, I collected all the fallen leaves and carried to our trash storage shed.
