Light Rains Sometimes Fall Lev Parikian


In the West we consider the passing of the year through the prism of four seasons. Other cultures see nature’s turn quite differently, however. The traditional Japanese calendar recognises that the subtle changes of the natural world with a total of seventy-two microseasons – inspiration for a new way of connecting with nature closer to home. In seventy-two short chapters, Lev Parikian charts the changes that each of these microseason brings to his local patch – garden, streets, park and wild cemetery.
