The true meaning of life is to plant trees, under whose shade you do not expect to sit

I got a chance to venture into town today. By car, this time. I am walking into town tomorrow morning, but I figured now would be a good time to pick up a few food items so that I would not have to walk them back in my pack tomorrow. I've decided that I will feed myself for the rest of my time here. I got a loaf of bread, guava jam, some packets of crackers and a few snacks. I am hoping that it will last me a week, but I am aiming for longer.
I washed my water canteen today for the first time. There was mold growing inside of it. I hadn't really cared to be honest. I mean, I didn't know that there was mold in there while I was drinking from it until today, but my earlier contemplations were to not wash it the entire time I was here. Because germs/bacteria/fungus are nothing to be afraid of.
I am in a different place today. At a shrine or a temple. Maybe I biked there. I think that I would have wanted it that way. I am in Japan today, in a peaceful place. Whether be it cemetery, park, country ride; I am in nature, elsewhere, with my heart.
|These are two unpeaked eggs that we found in a nest that was exhumed today. There is still a chance they will hatch, so we placed them in a shallow dish with water to keep them moist.|
|Today, we also had a nest of baby green turtles hatch. My first green. Actually, a few dozen! This is very exciting!|
