Where American Fuji began

This is the "Western room" of my apartment, named for the hardwood floor. It was the same size as my tatami (traditional) room, 6 mats. A mat is roughly 1 meter by 2 meters. I had to buy a special transformer for my computer to convert 120 volts to 100 volts. Most U. S. electronics will work good enough for jazz, but computers are sensitive. After a year of being underpowered, my computer data was scrambled and I lost all my files. Shikata ga nai. What else could I do but start the novel all over again?

(I admit I'm one of those geeks who likes black and white photography. Somehow, it makes me seem more authentic as a writer.)
