flowers in tokyo

On the small side streets of Tokyo I notice a calmness--flowers on door steps, nature blending willingly with the city. 

I know that I stand out here. There is no one here that looks like me, I'm not used to it. I'm trying to feel comfortable standing out, something that is usually difficult for me. But I have to wonder, why am I always so desperate to be unseen? It's a good challenge for me. I would like to feel bold in my own body, I am learning. I'm sure I will only feel this more when I visit the countryside.

Tomorrow to Hirosaki.
