When I was taking a walk in the morning. I saw a white rabbit in the front yard of a house. Is it a pet or a wild one? It must be a pet.
Because the rabbit's hair is white. If it is wild, the rabbit's hair is in brownish protective color. I grown up in the snow country in Japan. I saw wild rabbits many times. They were pure white in snow season and they changed hair color to brownish color in the season without snow.  fortunately, I had camera, I too this photo.

God Bless the U.S.A.

I went to Alondra park after I had breakfast with John in Japan town, LA. There was the Hawaiian festival was held. When I got there, the Hawaiian dance had just started. There were three dance groups performed on the stage. And at the end of it all the dance group get together front of the stage and danced with the song of Lee Greenwood's "Gad bless the U.S.A." It brought me tears in my eyes. I had a moving experience with the song at the very spacial place.

During my morning walk I saw two rabbits in the residential street. I tried to take photos but I have only cell-phone. So, it wasn't good picture. But at least you can see a rabbit. One rabbit hiding under the car on the street.

I decided to write a watercolor classroom newsletter. It is not a regular basis but  I write it occasionally when there is news. In the future I would like to post student ideas as well. It is like a wall newspaper in an old school.
