sunset

I rode my bicycle down around the pond as the sun set. Goose and gosling meandered nearby and the still pond mirrored the cloudless sky. In the fading light a crab apple in pink bloom shone scarlet while the dogwood in its silken dress glows the purest white. I think of you as their scent embraces me, a natural Chanel #5, rivaled only by jasmine or the mountain meadows of Wyoming.

A hundred cars drive by, I wonder if they know what they’re missing.

Shinto in Naperville Il… excellent preparation, lovely flavor.

This picture shows a caterpillar roll and a tempura roll, beautifully prepared.
Missing is the red tuna presented in the shape of a flower. Each serving unwraps the rose. The whole meal, green tea, edemame tender and lightly salted, sashimi of yellow tuna and white tuna and a spicy tuna roll.

Expensive, yes. Value, absolutely.
When you fall off the vegan wagon, it ought to be for something as good as this…
