After an invigorating walk on the beach this morning, we received some lovely news from our friends across the pond.
Last month we were honoured and delighted to have the above taiga (a haiga with a tanka) featured as part of the Tanka Society of America’s 20th Anniversary celebrations. Twenty-one taiga were featured in total, created by tanka poets from around the world.
Christine L Villa has now brought these contributions together in a beautiful video for all of you to enjoy:
A very big thank you to Susan Burch and Christine L Villa for this wonderful project!
The original tanka and image from which our taiga was created can be seen in last year’s post Zen Meditation.
We wish you all a very happy Monday and a beautiful week ahead,
Eivor is one of eleven animals we adopted over the years whose exact birthday we may never know. With the help of shelter staff an approximate birthday was suggested and we chose 8 April, already a birthday in our family and easy to remember.
It was the first time we celebrated two birthdays under lockdown conditions. We took the day off from phones and internet, managed to cook a special meal and had a magical time.
Wishing you all a beautiful Thursday and may you all stay safe and healthy,
with love from Eivor, Pearl and Xenia xxx
