My friend posted this message on my Facebook.

I'm noticing some Ikebana arrangements are looking a bit messier these days.
What are your thoughts Suzuki Eiko?

I answered as follow.

Hi Lyn, how have you been? Thank you for your message.
You asked what I think of this arrangement. I think it's "modern art". It doesn’t look the original ikebana, whose basic work is following the rules, but looks the artist's self-expression with plants, a genre called "modern ikebana". In this case, a large gray branch floating upside down with a lustrous maple tree on it is a beautiful work of art to the eye.
However, I think there is room for debate as to whether this can be called "ikebana" or not. My definition of "ikebana" is to make the characteristics of the plant come alive. In other words, I think ikebana is a technique to make plants look lively, or in other words, to make them happy. So, in my opinion, this work may be a one-sided work of self-expression using plants. It differs from conventional ikebana in that it uses plants as a mere material for self-expression, like paints in painting.
I hope I have answered your question ok.
It's been a difficult time with the spread of the new corona. I've come to enjoy making use of the plants around me to create ikebana works without going out, more than ever before.
Lyn, I hope you find your own enjoyment and live your life to the fullest.

I wondered when I started this project and found that the first year was for 1999. So it is the 21st year this time. Over that long period of time, not a year out, I think we have improved immensely in photography as well as in printing technology.
クラスカレンダー作成のプロジェクトをいつから始めたんだっけ。調べてみてわかりました。1999年用カレンダーが最初でした。ですから、今年は21年目。1年も抜けていません。その長い期間の間に、写真も印刷技術も随分進歩したのではないかと思います。

Bittersweet ツルウメモドキ  Hiroshima class Oct. 2020

We had a happy surprise visit of a school boy! His school is on the fall break today.
嬉しいことに小学生が来てくれました。学校は秋休みだそうです。

We had another surprise visit. The mother of a boy who used to take my class in his high school days came with her sister who also took my class before. They brought an article from a magazine which is issued by his high school. He is now a Kyoto University student and the article on the magazine is how he spent his high school days. I was very glad to read it and felt proud of him as if he were my son.
他にも嬉しい驚きの方がみえました。かつてクラスに通っていた高校生男子生徒さんのお母さんが妹さん(彼女もかつて稽古にみえていました)と一緒に来て下さったのです。高校生だった息子さんは、今は京都大学の立派な学生で す。彼が卒業生代表として高校の機関紙に書いた記事を持ってきてくださいました。立派な高校時代を過ごし、NASA主催する学会で発表をしたそうです。私はもう、自分の息子みたいに嬉しく、鼻が高かったです。 おめでとう。ますます輝いてください!

Thus, the day is over with happiness. Thank you, everybody.
こうして、この日も楽しく終わりました。皆さま、ありがとうございました。
