Starting with the new moon, a Mt. Fuji and `torii (gate) gingerbread for the moon`…a Nataraja (maybe the first ever Nataraja in gingerbread?!)
... today as the month and moon are nearing the end, I made gingerbread in yoga poses and a whole new batch of gingerbread came together and made a `WA`.
WA is a `circle` or ring and it is the national `kanji` for the upcoming year in Japan. Every year a Japanese character or `kanji` is chosen to be the theme for the year. `WA` was chosen in honour of the 2020 Olympics and in the spirit of people joining together around the world
輪 ＝ WA
Written with another Japanese character, WA 和 means `harmony`.
Wishing you a joy-filled holiday season, and a year (this will be the Year of the Horse!)
that is filled with harmony in a sweet circle of love!
