So yesterday, I posted the Hagakure quote about rain. This morning I couldn’t find my umbrella once I arrived at work and had to brave the elements as I walked scooted into the building. Now I would like for my posts to be topical but not that topical.

Of course, this incident does illustrate the truth of the quote. One can learn from a rainstorm. I learned that one should always leave an umbrella in the car.
