I had such a wonderful day today. I started my day with a mixing bowl of soul-warming porridge and then I lifted some weights. I watched some Avatar - The Last Airbender and after lunch I posted a card through a letter box and went into town to meet an brilliant friend. The sun came out from behind the clouds and we stumbled across a celebration of Japanese culture. My friend sipped tea and I sipped coffee, and we watched some brilliant acts, caught up and had our faces tickled by the unexpected sunshine. I was beyond excited by it all and I could have stayed lost forever in the afternoon. Inspired, I went home with wasabi peas for my mother and encouraged her to play djembe with me in the garden until my rice had cooked. I made sushi (no raw fish friends, of course) and then baked banana and chocolate bread with another friend and watched some Marvel. I have forgotten to be creative at all lately. I have just been doing everything as quickly as possible to get to the next place I need to be. It was nice to take a day to be slightly more creative and to be humbled by the creativity of others.
