桜満開 そろそろウグイスの出番 Full bloom cherry blossoms, It’s almost time for the warbler to sing

The big cherry blossoms under my work room are in full bloom and are very beautiful. I enjoy the warm weather, and looking at the cherry blossoms makes me feel at peace. I’m looking forward to hearing the warblers’ calls soon.

The strong wind the other day caused some of the cherry blossoms to scatter, so I guess the best time to see them will be this week. I also enjoy windsurfing and have fun every day!


新しいスポンサーチャイルドとの文通開始 Begin correspondence with new sponsored child

I started corresponding with my new sponsor child in the spring of this year. The child is a 13-year-old boy living in Ethiopia. According to a report from Plan International Japan, Ethiopia still faces many problems such as poverty, water, and sanitation. It has a particularly bad effect on children.

I hope that children will be able to freely imagine their own lives in a peaceful world. I’m also really looking forward to being able to talk to him about various things through letters!
