Yesterday, the 10th of May,
Michio & me
took a cab in the rain
to set up my Art Exhibition
at Cafe Miwa.
After, we went to my favorite to celebrate the show going up...
Indian restaurant, in Fuchu,
I have a few others to thank,
for my show happening.
My son Michio,
for not only carrying and helping me set up,
but this beautiful photo,
he took of me on Mother's Day for the poster,
and his bi-lingual help with the text...
Thanks also to my friend Iijima-san,
for her inspiration and translation abilities,
that helped get the ball rolling...
Thanks to my Ikebana group;
Iijima-san, Lorna, Valerie, Rebecca, Ahm Mar, Ponchan, & Shindo-san,
for their lovely flower arrangement
placed at my show...
Thanks to my English Conversation students, and Miki & Akie,
for their friendship and support...
And to my friend Hiroshi,
for his friendship and support.
Ms. Nao Suzuki, for her musical support...
To my family and friends from afar, who support me
with encouraging words;
my dear sister Wendy,
for her continued kindness...
Thanks to Akio Ueda,
for his support.
And Mr. Onodera,
at Cafe Miwa,
for his warmth and hospitality,
and thanks to all my fans who bought tickets
to my sold-out opening party...
And I thank God.
I feel very fortunate, today...
Till Next Time...
