In the woodlands right now, the autumn leaves are ablaze with colour and a riot of red, yellow and orange is carpeting the forest floor.
For a start, there are so many events lined up for the next few weeks. It was our anniversary two days ago, and then in only a few days it will be my birthday. And in‐between those two dates there are major holidays in both the USA and Japan.
In Japan, today is Labor Thanksgiving Day which replaced the earlier Harvest festivals held at this time. Then in the USA tomorrow is Thanksgiving Day. Both celebrate the harvest, the work of the last year and peaceful times. These festivals give all of us a great opportunity to say thank you to the people who matter – those who have worked hard to make our last year happy and healthy.
You have made 2016 such a memorable year.
And I need to add one last thank you – and that is to my husband Tim for his wonderful photos. I know many of you enjoy his photos too and I am always happy to be able to share them with everyone here.
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
