    Ten days of Sunao Yokota's Sumi-ink painting exhibition is over. We usually simply imagine that Sumi-ink equals black, but it is not true. We know Sumi-ink has a wide range of colors and expresses the state of one's mind. I was overwhelmed by Yokota's power of expression through her paintings and calligraphy. I am thankful for many guests who came to the exhibition and appreciated her works.

    Well, today I received a wonderful fall gift from one of the guests. It was a beautiful box of handmaid Japanese Malone Glace. There were five giant chestnuts in the box. When I ate one of them, the taste and texture were superb! I was so happy to appreciate this wonderful fall sweet.
