November 12th, 4:00 p.m. PST (Nov. 13, 9:00 a.m. JST), I participated in Thursday Poetry Zoom Meeting presided at by Ms. Kathabela Wilson from Hakuba Goryu area in Nagano Prefecture. I introduced beautiful scenery of mountains in late autumn, and performed reading of my new Tanka sequence.

I also shared my short sky-tour video on paraglider, which I experienced the day before for the first time in my life.

It was definitely a memorable meeting for me to get in touch with overseas fellow members' unique artistic expressions of pictures, images, poetry and flute play through the Internet, while I being surrounded by the Japanese mountains in autumn to winter season.
