Ah, the countryside!
Out here in Yamagata, the pace of life is slower than many places I go. The air has a sweetness, my eyes are drawn to the bounty of growing things all the way to the horizon. Yamagata is a magical place, and Atelier Gem Cafe, where I am working right now, is magical too. I love being with my hostess Teiko Sato-san and Sato-San in this little slice of heaven. Even the home, which also serves as our salon, is kind of what you would see in a fairy tale. We are doing all private sessions here in Yamagata, so my interpreter Midori Ohmae and I have a very comfortable life these days.
Just so you can see for yourself how beautiful it is here, I am attaching some photos Teiko-san assembled. I hope you enjoy seeing them as much as I enjoy being here.
Blessings of Universal Love,
