New Years night at home:
Lady Zen is fixing something, traditionally Japanese for dinner. Something light and somewhat simple as we are not suppose to have a large celebration, since it has been less than one year since the passing of my Father-in-law. We have a simple New year arrangement, the traditional bamboo flower arrangement, purchased in Japan last year. We also have the family ceremonial New Years sake set, which she brought back last year. It belonged to her father. Interestingly I got to use it the first time I visited and met her parents in Japan. It was just after New Years so it was still in keeping for them to do the ceremony with me. Little did we know it would be the last time with her father. You never know what the tide will bring…
