Joyeux Anniversaire!

I got some great gifts for my birthday!

A bouquet of flowers arrived in the midst of my post tooth extraction gloom. It lifted me up!

Thank you!

After the trip to Nagano, I have understood my inadequacy in all things sake. What do I need? A sake book!

Thank you!

Kikuta Ichiro san is a great artist. He painted my byobu. I am honored that he regards me as a friend. https://thequietripple.com/2020/09/20/byobu/

He gave me a painting of an Iju blossom. You will be tired of me talking about Iju, but it is the most beautiful of flowering trees. https://thequietripple.com/2016/05/11/iju/

The white pigment is made from crushed shells. The gold is real gold flakes.

Thank you!

Such good times!
