Words to keep
"It is impossible to live pleasurably without living wisely, well, and justly, and impossible to live wisely, well, and justly without living pleasurably." —Epicurus

Kyushu & Japan
The city of Yanagawa in Fukuoka Prefecture, Japan, is known for its delicious eel. People often visit Yanagawa especially to eat this local delicacy, or to take a leisurely ride down the Yanagawa River. The boatmen dispense bits of local history as they guide the boats along with their poles. Yanagawa is a picturesque little city with a picturesque name, which means "Willow River".

Q:  William Shakespeare apparently got the idea for one of his plays from a news item. Which play is it?
A:  The Tempest. It seems that Shakespeare got part of the idea, anyway, from a news item about some people who had been shipwrecked on an island in the Atlantic Ocean.
