      I’m slowly working through my photos of Japan, editing them, cropping them and so on. I thought I’d share a few here 🙂

      Lovely photos . Get a real feel and sense of the places from them.

      Inspiring. Did you do a temple journey on your trip? I’d love to hear more about it. Maybe when I come in June. Namo Amida Bu, Jan

      We visited lots of temple’s, although we didn’t stay overnight at any. We were able to join a couple of services at Chion-in, the HQ of Jodo-shu, including their enlightenment day celebration. We also went to a morning service at Higashi Honganji, the HQ of one of the Shinshu sects. Yes – we can catch up in the summer!

      I love looking at these photos. They are so atmospheric with a real sense of place. Thank you.

      Kaspa, how I’m enjoying your photos! What a wonderful trip that must have been, and it’s nice to ‘go along for the (photographic) ride.’

      I am prompted to tell you that beginning Thursday, I’m ‘facilitating’ (not teaching, just participating, leading and making sure the materials are posted and the students do their homework and commenting) a “Japanese Poetic Forms” class, six weeks, online at Writers’ Village University.

      It’s made me think of the courses you led for the different forms a few years back, which I very much enjoyed–some of which I ended up self-publishing in a book of poems with my Malaysia photos.  This class is described as ‘Haiku, tanka, renga, haibun, senryu, and haiku sequences’ and is based on a Bruce Ross book, “How to Haiku (etc).”

      I’m excited. I’m inspiring myself to come back and post something to prove it. 😉 Namaste.

      That’s great to hear Cynthia, I hope the course goes well. I do love the Japanese arts. I must go through the rest of my photos and post some soon.
