blog anniversary

IMG_2286

It has been a year since I started blogging. WordPress has reminded me of that.

I am surprised and not surprised at what I have written most – grief; I had dealt with the loss for two years and was beginning to think about the loss when I created this blog site.

I was skeptical and scared at first.
What do I post? Could I write anything in English? In Japanese? Could I come up with decent images? Do I have what it takes to keep going? What is a blog anyway?

I have learned from the generosity of others. I have learned to write by reading and being read. I have learned to make images by watching others.
Thank you.

I am also thankful for the technologies, which democratized art. I now have a place to purge, soar and let go.

 

皆様のおかげで、ブログを始めて一年が経ちました。本当にありがとうございます。これからどうなるのかは未だに不定ですが、何卒応援のほど、よろしくお願いいたします。

  14. Congratulations on your one-year anniversary! I like your blog a lot. Your images are always very interesting, especially your watercolors and your hybridized photos that you have altered with art. As I’ve said before, I think you have the beginnings of a future exhibit. As you release your own grief, you are helping others to release their grief. I don’t know if you realized that. So, thank you for your blog and thank you for your help. Also, I like being able to stay in touch with you this way.
