In the temples, shrines, and gardens I have seen the lanterns that must alight the blossoms by night. But I haven't gone to any at night.
This evening we walked along the path by the reservoir to go to a beloved local Indian restaurant, really the only place I go to when I eat out. And I generally order one of three dishes, all of which I enjoy. Tonight, because it was a night with Andrew, we ordered two favorite curries, and an additional red bean paste coconut nan. And then returned home by the well-worn path along the reservoir thinking about the places we've been in the world, bodies of water in France, customs in England; walking under street lamps snowing in spring in Japan.
