Passage #306: 1 July 2015
Though it is a full moon tonight, we had not (even as recently as an hour ago) been intending to have a picnic-like event. Well, actually, that is not entirely true. Originally, we were kind-of sort-of thinking about it but got sidetracked and post-rationalized that it was probably too cloudy to really enjoy the moon anyway, so why bother with a picnic? Such was our reasoning.
But sometimes the stars -- or the planets, or whatever -- align, and new opportunities present themselves. So we are indeed having a picnic-like event! Specifically, we are having a tea-making and -drinking event, in a most appropriate location. We have some teas and some cups and some water and a means to heat it, but if you are able to bring a cup of your own, or any tea or tea treats that you'd like to share, then by all means please do!
Given the tendency of good things to drown in their own goodness, we may show up at our tea-making and -drinking location only to find that it has become a total scene, scarcely a day after it first appeared. In that case, we may need to seek a different location, guided by whatever ephemera and ephemerides we find at our disposal. Whatever happens, it will be a bike ride.
