When I was in Japan last year, I attended a few rehearsals and performances of Noh theatre [the one with elaborate costumes, very controlled movements and masks]. My friend Yoko attends classes and is very skilled in this ancient form of theatre. She sent me a lovely calendar, bringing back memories of the amazing dedication and committment the older Japanese have to their traditions. It is tragic that the young ones are not interested in the rich heritage of their culture.

  1. Noela, it is tragic indeed. Let's hope that the interest of the foreinger will bring back the enthusiasm!
