Hi all!

I've just got home, it's evening and golden outside. An uneventful day at work - although I did learn of a swell new (video, PlayStation2) game that I would looooove to play I think, called Katamari Damashi. The anglicized version is spelling it as 'damacy' but there is no 'cy' sound in japanese. I know that 'katamari' means big, sticky ball. I looked up damashi and nearest I can tell, it means 'spirit'. The game is all about rolling over things and gathering them up with a big sticky ball (I bet rice balls have an influence here). Check out the site! It's soooo cute (kawaii!)! And the voice you hear is by a guy named Dukaka (I am pretty sure, but I think my spelling is off). He makes music with his voice, beatbox. I really want to make some music now. I started to learn how to play didge and I can make sounds come out but there is such a range of tones and stuff you can produce, with practice...and my little doumbek drum has been much neglected....

I shopped at Kiva after work:

and this is some of what I brought home. It's just so gorgeous, and the prices are falling again now that these veggies are more in season. Whew! I filled up various containers with my staples (millet, walnuts, quinoa) - I love doing this. I feel so fortunate. My larder is full. And I am going to blanch the chard and then do some art. Life is so good! Be talking to you all (together and individually) soon........
