Well That's Just Perfect

"The perfect blossom is a rare thing. You could spend your life looking for one, and it would not be a wasted life." --Katsumoto, The Last Samurai

Time's value is not fully appreciated until you find its relative abundance suddenly lacking. I've finally been able to watch The Last Samurai all the way through, free from interruptions. Although now I find that the night seems to have slipped away and by the minute I can almost sense my morning self becoming a little more annoyed with my present night self.

Last night I was out in the city with friends. Peter, understandably not wanting to pay the inordinate prices they charge for drinks in some of these places, decided it might be a good idea to look around for a bottle shop and pick up a few. There was only the slight problem of finding a place to drink them afterwards.

I remembered that Jerry would most likely be staying at Lyn's place on Margaret Street, so I suggested we give her a call. That way we'd be able to have a few drinks before going out and finally get to see if where Lyn is staying is really as tiny as Jerry keeps telling us. It was quite small – crowded even with just a few of us – just a single small bedroom, adjoining petite kitchen and a little tucked away bathroom. I'm not sure if I could live like that; good view and great location though.

I first saw The Last Samurai in the cinemas when it first came out and was rather impressed after not quite knowing what to expect. Perhaps we're all just wandering through life, toiling, an inane search for that one perfect blossom. In the end do we see the truth?
