The heat and humidity, this time of year, affects me the same way as it probably affects you. Simply put, it makes us tired. I was feeling just that way the other morning, near Akasaka Hitomi Dental Office, when I heard a chorus of lively tweets from a car park. I looked up at the overhang and saw this trio of small swallows, impatiently waiting for their mother to return with breakfast. Their energy, not only brought a smile to my face, but gave me a bit of a boost—made me Genki. If they can be bubbly despite the weather, so can I.
