I'm happy that I can start this blog with a card from my 'oldest' correspondent and sensei Debbie.
The mixed media card illustrates a poem by Misuzu Kaneko (1903-1930),

A Huge Haul
By the glow of sunrise,
the fishing boats brought in a huge haul.
Of sardines they had a huge haul.
On shore, the village celebrates with a festival.
In the sea, the sardines hold a funeral for tens of thousands of their mates.

The second card is from one of my newest friends, Mayumi Miyagawa who has sent me this wonderfully luscious strawberry . I can only imagine that this is a celebration of summer, perhaps Mayumi could comment and give us a translation?
