The Beginning of 2016

Happy New Year!

 

How was your New Year’s?

I was planning to run in the New Year’s Marathon

at Central Park on New Year’s Eve with my husband and my daughter

( She visited us for only 5days from Japan) .

 

However, I caught a cold, so I rested at home.

Even though I missed running with my family,

I was fortunate to greet the New Year by playing the crystal bowls.

My home and I were quickly filled with these brilliant sounds.

 

 

My daughter gave us a Japanese New Year’s ornament.

I ate Japanese noodles (soba). Soba is usually eaten by Japanese on New Year’s Eve.

I cooked traditional Japanese New Year’s dishes before the New Year,

decorated my home with the ornament, and we enjoyed a Japanese style New Year this holiday.

We will start work tomorrow, but I cannot imagine how my 2016 will go.
I will spend my time as best as I can, and I am excited to see what will happen.

I hope I will play the crystal bowls & piano much more than last year.

I also hope to reach many places and many people with my sounds .

I hope it will be a wonderful year for you, too!

【About my concert in September】

I performed twice in September. The first performance was in Sedona, Arizona and the second was in Shasta, California. At both I played the crystal bowl and the piano.

I am so fortunate to have been given the opportunity to play at these two special places in the USA.

My concert in Shasta on September 22nd.
I performed for the people who attended a meditation event.

I was so happy to play the song “The sound of Small Brook” which I composed when I visited Shasta 2years ago.
When I composed this song, I imagined and expressed the stream of mount Shasta.

I want to thank everybody who came my concert!
