SWET Hanami Online Talk Shop

"Hanami" conjures possibly homogenous images, but is quite different depending on where you live along the length of Japan or whether you are in the northern or southern hemisphere. The timing of "spring" differs as well. From where you are we invite you to add to the special “Hanami” album above. Be sure to click the arrows at the sides to see the other images (a bit sparse so far!). Please send your photos (with caption) to SWETContributions received between March 15 and April 15 will be included

Join us for our SWET Hanami Online, March 25th (Sat.,10:30 a.m.–12:00 noon JST)! Neither rain, nor late-March chill, nor long distances willl dampen this online SWET hanami! Tune into from under a blooming tree near you, from your desk or smartphone with a Zoom background of blooms or, if you are in the Southern Hemisphere, autumn flowers or foliage, or even with a sprig on your desk. Join solo, with your partner, your children, your cat or dog or parrot, your cup of “spring water.” Brought together by the flowers (or the colors of fall), this is the chance for some spring networking among fellow wordsmiths, putting faces to names, and discovering who is where and doing what. Registration in advance required.
