I apologize for canceling the previous Live Streaming on 3/14 without any prior notice. I found myself in a very sick condition on Thursday morning and I had been in bed for a while. I couldn’t get up to write the announcement… Sorry for that. I hope I can restart the Live concert this coming Thursday.

Sashiko is getting more popular day by day. It is a good thing that Sashiko has more opportunity to be seen, yet it has been a lot of work to “explain” what Sashiko is. The language is a power – and because of the power English has, Sashiko has become something very different from what I practice. You can find so many comfort & positive comments saying [Whatever is fine]. It is true that there are no rules – however, their comfort level simplifies, minimizes, and neglects the culture. I (need to) write a story to protect it. Well. I am happy to share the story – it is so stressful to deliver the message to those who I actually really need to deliver it to. There is another world outside of this account where people use the word “Sashiko” for their own convenience. It is one way to ignore them, yet I do not want to ignore the ignorance any longer. Well. I have no choice. I cannot let someone define what my (our) life is all about.
