May 7, Zoom Poetry Meeting with Germany

At 11 a.m. on May 7 Germany time (6 p.m. on the same day, Japan time) I participated in the Zoom Meeting which is presided at by Ms. Karen Mahashakti Gartner. Ms. Hanna, who has deep knowledge of poetry, and holds poetry workshops, joined the meeting. I hope they enjoyed my performance with percussion BGM.
After the reading performance, she requested me to visit Germany to present reading performance for she wants the members of her poetry workshop to listen to my performance. She also told me she wants to plan a reading event for me some day in the future.
I am very honored, and I would like to deepen exchange with her from now on. I would like to express my sincere gratitude toward Ms. Karen who offered me a wonderful opportunity to open up a new stage.
