Thank you so very much for your
great birthday messages. I was very touched. It's nice to know that I have
friends in that corner of the world, too! I know you are not all from Finland,
but your messages reminded me of when I was in Helsinki, the water and the light
there is so beautiful. Each time I think of it, it still elates me as if I were
there now! They put up the WAR IS OVER banner both in English and in Finnish in
Helsinki Train Station. This was 1991. I, also, went to Pori for my artshow. There is a thing the Pori Museum, (I think it's them) printed
called BIRCH MONOLOGUE which was what I produced thinking of Finland.
Finland is cold, as they say, but I'm strong on cold weather. I miss the snow
in Tokyo which I remember from my childhood. Now, because of the global warming
or whatever, there is no snow in Tokyo...
you again, for your messages of encouragement. Yes. I intend to stick around for
Lots of love, yoko
