Re: summer! yay!
A nice sunny post. I like the word you used...'embrace' a very powerful concept.
Shihonage, one of my favourites. For me there are many ways of doing it but the breakthrough personally came from doing it from one purpose.... to give back to, return to. From then on I had no problem with it.
I like the concept though so I shall find one of my own mmm. Maybe a yonkyo summer.
