One afternoon, an order came with a beautiful picture of a girl in kimono.
It was for coming of age day.
It was such a lovely set of kimono and obi - the sash - that I really enjoyed planning and making kanzashi for her.
At the same time, I am very grateful that they asked me to involve in their important event.
All the best to her and her family.
Finally back in Tokyo, and restart my ordinary days - I suppose.
Looking back my schedule, I thought it was close.
If my return to Japan was a day or 2 late, and if my departure to Osaka was a day late, then I had a lot of problems.
But, all's well that ends well.
Just I am very tired...
Anyway, here is a kanzasi with cherry and plum blossoms.
This actually was made for the book, but it was not on it...
One wedding and a funeral.
Two of the significant events in life came up within a week.
Various events in life, or even in a year, came to have different impacts on me as I get older.
Oración - prayer in Spanish.
Healthy growth of children, prosperous future to a couple, and peaceful rest to the dead.
Hair accessory for three-year-old ceremony.
Cheerful and energetic like most of the kids.
Since last night, I was worrying.
About an email I received nearly midnight.
But it turned out to be "good news" out of my colleagues' kindness.
This year, I realised how many people concerned about me, and thinking of me much much more than I expected.
How can I ever repay to their kindness?
I'm not sure... even how.
The only thing I can do is not to make them regret.
Anyway, I shall be at a bookstore in Jinbo-cyo from this Thursday to next Wednesday.
