Ah, the countryside!

Out here in Yamagata, the pace of life is slower than many places I go.  The air has a sweetness, my eyes are drawn to the bounty of growing things all the way to the horizon.  Yamagata is a magical place, and Atelier Gem Cafe, where I am working right now, is magical too.  I love being with my hostess Teiko Sato-san and Sato-San in this little slice of heaven.  Even the home, which also serves as our salon, is kind of what you would see in a fairy tale.  We are doing all private sessions here in Yamagata, so my interpreter Midori Ohmae and I have a very comfortable life these days.

Just so you can see for yourself how beautiful it is here, I am attaching some photos Teiko-san assembled.  I hope you enjoy seeing them as much as I enjoy being here.

Blessings of Universal Love,

Terrie 🙂
