There is a lottery without blank every year. I got a handkerchief of indigo dye.

Fresh fishes

My customer treated me to lunch at her home.

She dressed me fresh fishes from Awaji-shima Island in that morning.

We ate them with some sauce that fit each. For example, soy sauce, Sesami sauce and grated daikon radish with Yuzu.

At last, We had sea bream chazuke!

Happy talk and happy meal! I was really happy!

I can`t thank you enough.

Twentieth memorial

I was invited a concert of 20th years memorial of Hanshin Awaji earthquake disaster by my friend in Hyogo Performing Arts Center.

The conductor was Yutaka Sado and a program was the Symphony No. 2 `resurrection` by Gustav Mahler.

The start time of concert was 5:46pm that was 12 hours after when the earthquake hit at 5:46am. We prayed silently before the concert.

In that day, after stoped shake of earthquake, my mom shouted to me `Come out from your room !Hurry up!`. But I couldn`t . A nearby big train station was destroyed. There were many temporary dwelling was on my way to school. I couldn`t say anything to see the town was broken into fragments.

There are many sad memories that I can`t forget.

But I saw many people who live strong, even though was hurt deeply.

Still we are on the way of the resurrection, but maybe audience felt something from the lyrics of music.

I wish many people who suffered from a disaster including recent years have many smiles on the way of the resurrection to continue in the future.

A stray cat that visits my house sometimes took a nap in narrow narrow window sill.

A below big stone seemed very cold.

You stay outside everytime…you must be so cold…

Photography

I asked for a photographer to take photos for exhibitions in this year. I will have an exhibition with leather artist Yuka Ushirokita in this spring. So we took lots of photos including Yuka as a model for it.

The photographer taught us many things like how to show my works and to whom.

I asked for some photos of my father`s works fo his exhibition.

I thought that it was funny that works appeared different faces depend on angle of light.
