I had a really nice start to my morning today.  My friend, Diane, invited me to be her guest at a tea ceremony for her Japanese aesthetics class.  It was really peaceful, and very traditional.  Sadly, I didn’t take any pictures, but you can check out the UIUC Japan House at their blog.

Well, time to go work on my drug paper I’ve been putting off for three weeks…I just changed my topic from crack vs. cocaine laws to methamphetamine problems in Asia, so I’m more excited now about writing it.  Whoo!
