July 19, 5:00 p.m., U.S. time (July 20, 9:00 a.m., Japan time), I participated in the Reading event, " Village Poets of Sunland & Tujunga" presided at by Ms. Maja Trochimczyk, and performed Tanka sequence "Borderless Prayers" both in English and in Japanese.

I am very honored to be invited as one of the three featured performers, and was given 20 minutes for my performance.

We are still under Corona crisis, but I believe it is important for me to continue delivering poetry to the world via Zoom during the tough time.
