Dalia, my new friend, lives in Nagoya for a few months by now.
We met through mail introduction by a mutual friend who knew we share deep love to Japanese culture.
We exchanged mails, pictures, suggestions.
Last week, she came for a holiday visit, and we were having a long conversation in my studio.
Before she left she chose a few ceramic shards to spread in Japan.
She and Arie traveled last weekend with two shards, and this is what happened.
All photographs are theirs- the enjoyment is mine and yours as well.
My friends traveled to Chikubushima Island
They passed a rice field.
A key to Alexandria library is patiently waiting for the farmer.
They visited Hougon Temple
A rested a shard among stones.
A women came close and folded her scroll that was just stamped, very close to the stones.
She notices a shard!
She is kindly willing to be photographed.
Her spouse joins her.
These pleasant people who came to this sacred temple, did not speak any English. However, the next morning I see that there were twice as many visitors from Japan to Blog at artwork!
