"…Living only for the moment, turning our full attention to the pleasures of the moon, the snow, the cherry blossoms and the maple leaves; singing songs, drinking wine, diverting ourselves just floating, floating….refusing to be disheartened, like a gourd floating along with the river current; this is what we call the floating world…” Asai Ryoi, in Ukiyo Monogatari (Tales of the Floating World, 1661)

Daily Life: Sunday Afternoon
Dinner was a teriyaki salmon bento box. Then browsed the book store. Then groceries.
Now, an Orange Julius, people watching, one last errand and then home for the evening.
