Takako's Huckberry (Enoki エノキ) news.....!!!

Hi, Hiroshi,

I have a sad news to share with you today.

4月頭に芽をだしたtree projectの木ですが、今日お家に帰ってきたら
My Tree Project seed sprouted at the beginning of this April, but I found it down on the ground when I came home today... he didn't seem to be well at all.

I was so excited, especially after getting a toy street lamp last weekend, having it join the tree in the pot. 
I was going to report to you about my bitty tree tonight or tomorrow with a photograph from this morning..

Maybe it was too much pressure for the tree that I was talking to him every day.
(Well, because, it didn't sprout for a week or so while I was looking at it really closely every day... but it did happily during my weekend Boston trip, when I was absent.)
Maybe it's like raising a kid.
Maybe I shouldn't have paid too much attentions like that.

I was so disappointed and couldn't do anything else when I came home tonight.
I will recover from this unfortunate event, and would love to try again if you would give me another chance.

では、引き続き砂入さんのtree projectのメーリングリスト/ウェイトリストに
So, will you please leave my name on your mailing list/waiting list for the Tree Project for another while...?

Sincerely sorry.

Takako Tanabe

Ginkgo survived in Arequipa, Peru!!!

"Emotion! A few weeks ago I went to the Fundo Inca in Arequipa to visit the Hibaku (ginko biloba) who nevertheless survive ... Thanks to all who participated in both stages of the project "Políticas del display (Patio Sobrevivencia)" first in [e] Star in Lima and then at El Cultural and the Museum of Contemporary art (MAC) in Arequipa ♥"

(Emoción! Hace unas semanas pasé por el Fundo INCA en Arequipa para visitar al Hibaku (ginko biloba) que a pesar de todo sobrevivó ... Garcias a todos los que participaron del proyecto "Políticas del display (Patio Sobrevivencia)" tanto en [e]Star en Lima como en El Cultural y Museo de Arte Contemporáneo (MAC) de Arequipa ♥)
