Buying the Not Buying

Grateful for:

  1. Buying a stack of new books to read at e green books bookstore, including a book on Not Buying.
  2. Finding a hidden paradise of a cafe on top of the hill in Kyoto. One has to follow a mossy stone path first past houses then through a forest to find it and the atmosphere and interior were very rustic and homely, I just sat there not wanting to leave after we finished our meal, daydreaming staring out the window into the panorama of Kyoto. http://www.mo-an.com
  3. Packing everything and cleaning the place in preparation for departure.
  4. Seeing contemporary Japanese art and sculpture exhibition in Kyoto Municipal Museum of Art.
  5. Discovering a way to quickly store youtube videos on iPod using http://keepvid.com
  6. Finding 2 great ways to give and earn: microfinance and p2p lending. Even though most sites are for US citizens only at least it was great to find out about the concepts to investigate further later.
  7. Having a lovely salmon & brie salad for dinner at http://www.traction-bookcafe.com
  8. Sorting and uploading a few photo batches to Flickr.
  9. Catching up with people on Facebook.
  10. I am extremely introspective.
