Yeah, I know what you’re thinking: It’s Tuesday, but it feels like Monday, right? Well, that’s because it was a national holiday in the U.S. yesterday, and not to be overly nationalistic, but here it feels like Monday whereas if you’re reading this in another country it feels like Tuesday.
Life is so confusing at times. But that’s how it should be. Complexity breeds versatility.
Meanwhile, in a more focused manner, I’m gathering information for what may be a book I’ve been asked to write on Japan–its rice–and giving serious thought to soft shelled crabs, toro, and cold white wine.
I’m fascinated, too, by the challenge of distraction and complacency, the ways in which habits take the place of trying new things, and all the bunnies I’ve spotted today and the past few days in the neighborhood. Added to which the loss of the architectural splendor now that the trees are leafy again.
