The Rye Will Stay in My Soul Forever

I was shocked by one news.

It's J.D.Salinger's death. Because, my most loved novel is "The Catcher in the Rye".
When I read "The Catcher in the Rye" first, I was a high school student. It's about 25 years ago.
But, I'll never forget the impact, impression and sympathy for "Holden".
In fact, I read his story for many times. Of course, I'll read it for many times after this.

I think Holden may be Salinger. Or, Salinger may be Holden?

May his soul rest in peace.

Good by 2009 and welcome 2010!

"Akeome" is the informal greeting at New Year's Day in Japan and it means "Happy New Year". We have the custom of sending New Year's cards said "Nengajo" at New Year's Day.

Exactly I'd send it. And this is my Nengajo.

Wow! That's so simple! Ha ha...
2010 is the year of the Tiger, so I used three colors symbolize the tiger: yellow, black and white.

2009 was the unforgettable year for me. How about 2009 for you?
I wish you a lot of happiness in 2010.
