Spring scarf collection/ Silk Cotton Shawl / Flowing river water

Silk Cotton Shawl  /  Flowing river water

Here I am in Chestertown,

the second month of lockdown for COVID-19 prevention.

Keeping us 6 feel apart…

No future prospects of what we are heading into,  as if the weather read our mind, there is a lot of rain and overcast skies.

I drove down to south from Chestertown to Eastern Neck National Wildlife Refuge, that connects the Chester River and the Eastern bay.

Light of the sky, sun and river were marge together in shade of gray blue.

The rapeseed field of yellow spread all over around there.

It is in this season, and only this moment that is not eternal.

But you can memorize it.

A Walk

My eyes already touch the sunny hill.
going far beyond the road I have begun,
So we are grasped by what we cannot grasp;

it has an inner light,even from a distance-

and changes us, even if we do not reach it,
into something else, which, hardly sensing it,
we already are; a gesture waves us on
answering our own wave…
but what we feel is the wind in our faces.
by Rainer Maria Rilke

Thank you,
and please have a positive outlook
and be mindful about keeping your body healthy.

One more thing!
I would like to share with you little bit more.
Since you spend time reading until this last.

I made a small photo album.
Thought of time we did not have digital life, I wrote a letter, a painted postcard.

The letters that arrive in the posts always make my day happy.

If you would like to share your thought and my thoughts of a photo album,

please e-mail me for your name,  your mailing address and any message.

A happy new year 2020

Happy New Year!
I truly appreciate all the kindness you showed me this past year, and I wish for your continued support this year as well.
 ———————
This year marks the twentieth anniversary of TextileYuh.
And the next exhibition at Wabisabi-ya will be the 24th installment.
In 2000, I established this company in Kiryu, Gunma Prefecture Japan, and I opened the New York branch in 2003. Since then, I have been designing, producing, and selling my scarves in the US myself. My scarves have transformed, just like my life—going through cycles of imagination, decision making, and results on which the past twenty years have been layered.
For a new challenge at this twentieth anniversary, I decided to move my base from New York to Chestertown, a small port town in Maryland. A blue house in this small town will be my new home base.
I am excited to equip the house with a substantial workshop space for dyeing, printing, and weaving in order to create my unique items.
Meanwhile in Kiryu, I will continue to promote beautiful Japanese crafts for years to come.
———————
I wonder how my new challenge for 2020 will end up. But I hope it will lead to a peaceful future and harmonious state of existence. My turning point begins at Wabisabi-ya.
I thank the organizer, Ms. Takano of Wabisabi-ya, from the bottom of my heart.
I thank to Bunsei Matsuura / Photographer and Tsukasa / Model for making perfect images to “Monte”
And finally I thank to Faith Wilson encouraging me to the new life in Chestertown !!
