Tokyo, 2018.07.03

Today's outing was to a place called Kidzania. Tragically, it doesn't rhyme with Tanzania, but it seems to be a hit with the kids: they spent the full 6-7 hours they had taking all of the training they could: train and car driving; bread making; etc.

Oh, and Grandma wrote to say that the Nintendo turned up at her place. I'd put it away out of reach during a recent visit, when The Boy was not cooperating - and it simply stayed behind.

In the evening we met our dear friend Yagu for dinner, and she stayed with us in the apartment forgotten by the Internet.

(In which I leave the final word to someone else.)

Meaning is not something you stumble across, like the answer to a riddle or the prize in a treasure hunt. Meaning is something you build into your life. You build it out of your own past, out of your affections and loyalties, out of the experience of humankind as it is passed on to you, out of your own talent and understanding, out of the things you believe in, out of the things and people you love, out of the values for which you are willing to sacrifice something. The ingredients are there. You are the only one who can put them together into that unique pattern that will be your life. Let it be a life that has dignity and meaning for you. If it does, then the particular balance of success or failure is of less account.

-John Gardner
