~ My Treasury: A Geisha's Longing ~

I was thinking about one of my favorite books,  Memoirs of a Geisha, and listening to wistful love songs.  So, this week's treasury is dedicated to that.  I wanted to capture the feeling of an incomplete glamourous life, a person who's missing something.  Is it love?  Is it freedom?

If you haven't read the book yet, go read it!  The book is so much better than the movie.  I read it in 2 days 'cause I couldn't put it down.  And yes, I have a thing for the Japanese culture.  I think it's all the anime I watched when I was a kid.  I even took Japanese in college even though language isn't a requirement!  

Nihon-go o benkyo shimashita!  hmm.... I wonder if that's right....  ja ... mata ne!
