Realized I saw FotR in 2002. Could it have been then? that hot, hideous, everything-wrong, moon-blasted and salt-sown spring? Surely not. Consulted diary. Yes indeed. Eight years ago when unseasonable snow was falling on the newly opened plum and cherry trees. 2002 was an armpit of a year whose name is never to be mentioned in my presence; but parts of it were excellent.
(Also discover that it was K-chan who sent me Marginal, in 2002, and not Seishinja a year later. Well well well.)
