"…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)

This Evening Is Quiet
Two easy days at work. It is so nice not to have a schedule crammed with meetings. I've actually managed to get some things done. Tomorrow should be equally as productive.
