On this day, I went there to buy noodles so I could make a nice little soup with ginger, peas, broccoli, garlic, tofu, and a miso base. (Yes, I'm vegetarian, except for seafood. Maybe I'll write about that some day.)

I saw that the blossoms were just about to burst out on the trees. The buds on the lilacs are tiny but on their way. Such wonders cannot be beheld up close if you're stuck inside, unable to walk for all the pain.
The moral of this little tale is: Never take the ability to walk for granted. Never take the little things for granted. Remember your good fortune, in these small wonders.
