Hokkaido Highway Blues - Will Ferguson

When a child is born in Japan, the umbilical cord is saved and carefully stored, creating a dry fragile relic - a personal piece of archaeology - that soothsayers and psychics muse over on special occasions. Umbilical cords contain a certain visceral magic in Japan, and as I looked out across the bay from my hotel window, out to the Bridge of Heaven, it hit me in a surge of recognition: I was looking out at the lifeline itself, the connection between god and earth. I was looking at the umbilical cord of Japan. - pg. 164
