    The Pillow Book of Sei Shōnagon is a poetic biography of the life of a legendary alpha female courtesan in the palace of the omega emperor of Japan. ( Unavoidable things: fading purple dye.

    Summary

    Really, it's bad enough that you have to deal with these sorts of people in the cooler months. In summer I wish they'd just take themselves off to the provinces and all be disagreeable at each other, and leave us alone.

    Summary

    Vexing things--When something petty that one has said finds its way back to the ears of the person in question. Going on a retreat to a temple and finding someone already there whom you would rather not meet, but of course having made the preparations, you cannot simply leave.

    Summary

    Things that enliven a winter's day--The guileless chatter of a small child. The sound of some low-born person passing by out in the cold, while you are inside in the warmth. Reading out loud. A witty acquaintance coming to visit, and not staying so long as to wear out their welcome.
