When I lived in New York, I often watched the sun and the moon. The rows of brown stone houses line up west to the right, east to the left, and the sun beautifully illuminates the road. A long shadow appears when you walk on the back of the western sun, and when you walk toward the sunset, you cover your eyes from dazzling sun. I’m always excited to encounter
the moon come out with the different size, shape, and color. It is beautiful to see a big round full moon from the valley of a building in Manhattan, or to see a yellow line arc over the night sky.
Today is a full moon night. Today, I will take a walk to encounter the full moon in Chestertown. Photo / Benton Collins, Model / Nola Sporn Smith

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.

Greetings from Summer in Brooklyn.
The summer in New York is rushing away.
Please summer, don’t go yet.
We are still in the mood for summer, at the beach,
by the seaside and gatherings outside in parks.Meanwhile, I had a Summer Annual Craft exhibition on the west coast
in San Francisco last week.
San Francisco, California a place where state of the high-tech innovation and new talents grow abound.
It is little bit intimidating to exhibit my works there
but it is a great opportunity to get connected to people
with unlimited inspiring urban spirit.The climate is cool and dry all year round.
However the air currents around the Golden gate bridge create fog, covering the city of San Francisco like a gray cloth.
Compare the bright blue sky over Sausalito on the other side of the bridge and San Francisco’s gray sky and drizzle.
How magical, mystical landscapes, they are.My various summer scarf collection
( silk, cotton and cashmere wool ) for San Francisco
were absolutely suited to the climate.Thank you so much for all of you coming to
American Craft Council Show SF.
I had a wonderful meeting and time, and hope to see you next year.
