Konnichiwa Jaime-san,

Thank you for coming by when I know you have not yet recovered fully. I hope the test results will help you to find the right treatment for your pain.
As you know, I still need to be careful not to overdo things, and the practice of yoga & ayurveda has helped me in balancing my daily life. If you are interested in ayurveda treatment, I am sure satovic can help you. If you want to get in touch with her, please let me know.

AND on the lecture, yes doesn't it sound exciting?! Pallet and I are really looking forward to participating in this event.

Take it slow now^^

Hi, hi;

I wish I could attend the lecture. If so, I could ask Mr. Chun what motived YJ to start learning about the aspects of lacquer.

I hope you don't mind that I share this great news with the K-sisters in byjintoronto.

Thanks again.

Hi suehan,

Oh, I wish you could attend too!
Although he will be giving the lecture in Japanese, I'm sure he would love to speak to a participant in his mother tongue.

Like I mentioned in my latest posting, there will be a Q&A session at the event, so I'm sure many people will be eager to bring up your question!

Thank you for your effort in sharing this news with the Korean sisters^^

Hi bb,

No need to apologize - I should be thanking you^^

The biography seems really interesting doesn't it?
Too bad there isn't an English version.

I know you're busy as usual, but do take care.
