Haruki Murakami - "Colorless Tsukuru Tasaki"

I am reading Haruki Murakami's newest book, "Colorless Tsukuru Tasaki."  (Tsukuru does not speak in Nagoya-ben...)

Wedding Welcome Flower Art

M.H. requested her wedding welcome board. I had a chance to visit her fabulous condo. She beautifully framed my art and decorated it with antiques from their honeymoon in Italy. Look at the purple treble clef on the right corner of the art. I made it when we had a cup of tea together last October. She thought that it was a work of art!   

My art with flowers by the wedding party entrance.

Maneki-Neko's New Home in New York State

After my Tupelo's April Poetry Project, D.K. requested a piece of art to make him smile. I received his Thank-You- Note with the picture of my art and messages.  I am really happy that he likes it. 
I actually drew two Maneki-Neko styles. The other cat went to a clinic in Kasugai, Japan.

Pokemon Plane in Hokkaido

I saw a Pokemon Plane on the way to my vacation in Hokkaido, Japan.

Artticle 9 of the Japanese Constitution

I regret that I do not have a vote for this Japanese election on July 21, 2013. They are trying to changeArticle 9 of the Japanese Constitution. If you have a vote, please vote wisely.

"ARTICLE 9. Aspiring sincerely to an international peace based on justice and order, the Japanese people forever renounce war as a sovereign right of the nation and the threat or use of force as means of settling international disputes.(2) To accomplish the aim of the preceding paragraph, land, sea, and air forces, as well as other war potential, will never be maintained. The right of belligerency of the state will not be recognized."
