metro > lecon de japonais > institut arabe > metro > linge > spaghetti
Today was my first japanese lesson, at TENRI, with sensei Sugimoto, who was very patient and friendly. It was fun, but I couldn't remember new words...hmmm. I will study this week. It's exciting to start! Let's see how much I worked next week.
I went shopping for autumn clothes (sweatpants, warm, under jacket, hats), mainly for inside, actually, where it has been a bit cold in the evenings. Feeling warm, now, stomach full of spaghetti. Olive sauce is good.
Met up with my friend Carole to visit the Insititut du Monde Arab to check out the jewelry exhibit currently in place. Was interesting to be there, never had been previously. We had a nice, if brief, visit, wondering what's up with our friend Vince.
The laundry machine here makes a racket. I understand why the downstairs neighbor doesn't appreciate it but am glad it is here. Far better than walking down to the laundromat. Sometimes social interaction feels like it takes hours off your life (which of course it does, like everything).
Actually, that's what your life is, come to think of it.
Tonight, starting with the editing. Maybe read a little. Rest. Tomorrow, buying a weekly metro pass and one or two other errands, but mostly calm. Different scene than Marnay. Both have their advantages.
