"The house looked the same as it did during my last visit: the low table where Ushi takes meals, the ancestor shrine in the main room, the simple futon roll visible through the open bedroom door, the age-browned wooden wall, the tatami mats worn smooth with decades of use. Near a back door I saw soiled gloves, wooden thongs, and the large conical hat—Ushi's garden wear. For the next few minutes, I was happy to immerse myself in the exotic simplicity of hot jasmine tea on a cold day, sheltered from the rain in the simple conviviality of rural Okinawa."

"Are you eating meat a couple of times a week, or are you eating it every day for two meals a day? Are you eating processed meats that are filled with fat? Or are you eating good cuts of fairly lean meat? To me, I just come back to moderation. Assuming that you were in pretty good shape in your 20s, if you could maintain that weight, you would be in good shape. The truth is at 20, you could for all sorts of reasons, eat all sorts of terrible things and maintain that weight, because you were more physically active, because your system was just more resilient."

"I've learned to make my own meals for the family," Sayoko said. "I put love into my food. I care for my husband and my children, the husband comes home, and I have a good family. Also, I try to mentally check to make sure that I haven't hurt anyone, that the people around me are okay. I take time each night to think about the people around me, and think about what I eat, and what is important to me. I also do this during dinner. I take time to reflect. I'm not chasing the carrot any more." RETURN TO USHI By the time we arrived at Ushi's house, it was mid-afternoon."
