"…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)

Tonight I Watched The Master of Ballantrae
It's a quiet evening here at home and I have spent the bulk of it enjoying a classic movie. Errol Flynn in "The Master of Ballantrae". Purely classic.
