    Tenderness and Kindness
    are not signs of weakness and despair,
    but manifestations of Strength and Resolution.

    Hi again, Yora! It has been a long time since I left a message on your page. I have not been on Care2 for about 3 months now, for various reasons, but I am getting back to it again. I wanted to just say hi to a few of my favorite Care2 friends, and you are one of them. I love gentle, artisic people who appreciate the pretty side of life. You obviously are very much one of those people, Yora. So I just wanted you to know I am still around, and still a part of the Care2 Community. I hope all is going good for you, your husband, and your whole family in Kyoto.I'll bet Kyoto is as beautiful in the winter as it is with the Cherry Blossoms in the spring. Just in a different way. I really just wanted to say hi. Take care! Jim.
