Emile writes via postcard, "I have chosen the Weather of 2011 as my end of the year theme." He adds a note about tsunami's wrath and how much nature's enormous potential can and does affect our lives. He writes, "As this 2011 year comes to an end and as we have had such a powerful dose of living in the present, I do sincerely wish that 2012 will be a period of moderate, benign weather....everywhere."
He adds, "And so let us share this toast: To Good Health, Good Weather, and Much Happiness." with a note to me thanking me for our updates. He then writes, "I still think visually and look forward to painting outdoors this year."
