I hunkered down this afternoon at Uwajimaya
at the Vietnamese lunch counter over a bowl
of steaming pho, fragrant with fresh ginger, basil,
jalapeno. There are half a dozen stools wedged-in
down a little corridor. It's cozy, anonymous, private.
The perfect antidote to rain and shopping panic.

  1. Ah, I can feel the rising steam on my face, taste the fragrant blend of flavors. Don't panic, you will prevail, complete with 20 guests for dinner!
