From the mud on wooden clogs,
Spring begins anew.

Nobody makes baskets as lovely as the Japanese. Masterful.

Judaism is probably the religion that begat both Christianity and Islam, in a way. So, an exhibit like this can only help understand one of the more important cultures in the history of mankind. Thanks a lot for your thorough review. And funny that you're a reviewer for the SF Examiner. I know someone who does freelance stuff for them, concerts of the alternative variety.

Greetings from London.
