A little while ago, I visited a calligraphy exhibition specialized in kana or Japanese phonetic characters and there I received a gift of Japanese pickled vegetables, which made me really happy because I love them so much.
It has already been five years since I visited Poznań, Poland and was allowed to participate in a calligraphy exhibition, being very worried about my mother who must be waiting for me in an institute for the elderly. I got precious friends there who have been giving me warm and strong friendship even now, which is something like a “dream friendship” without a sense of reality.
I tried to clean up my house before, and now I am tidying my computer. Then I found these photos of paper fans, which I remember I left as thank-you’s at a Buddhist temple that I was very fortunate to be allowed to use as a venue of the group exhibition held in July, 2015. It is really enjoyable to see those characters I myself love.

In my message to the visitors at the calligraphy exhibition held in Poland in November 2017 which I was really fortunate to be allowed to participate in, I briefly mentioned “power of words” that is extremely intriguing to me.
