A Christmas Present from Japan

Christmas Eve brought me in the post a beautiful gift from Elizabeth Bishop's devoted translator into Japanese, Michiru Oguchi: an album of photographs she made during her visit to Nova Scotia for the University of King's College conference "It Must Be Nova Scotia: Negotiating Place in the Writings of Elizabeth Bishop." I'd like to share it now with you.

  1. This is the loveliest virtual visit to Great Village imaginable. Wonderful to think of it coming from Japan. I almost wish I could replay the year, just to pick up on everything I missed, and to taste again all of the delightful experiences I did have - Thank you, Sandra, John, and Suzie, for everything - what a very memorable year! and I'm delighted that the blog is continuing... and even though the centenary is gone, EB's poems miraculously continue to renew themselves....
