A Bit of Japan

Saturday, March 19th, 2011

arrived in this envelope from Belgium this morning.

My Twelve by Twelve friend, Fran├žoise, who has traveled to Japan quite often, was very excited for me to have the opportunity and shared in my disappointment. So, she sent me a bit of Japan in the form of papers, fabric scraps and a lovely bookmark, created by her.

Today was the day of our departure and so it was especially poignant to receive this lovely little package from her.

As I have said, I am sad, but it pales in comparison with my sadness for the Japanese people and all that they are enduring.
