Dear Harold:

This view looking westward from
Edo Bay toward two fishing villages—
Nekozane on the right side of the
channel and Horie on the left.

inspired this haiku:

    A single boatsman,
    Rows of huts along the shore,
    And ah— Mt. Fuji!

The 96th Psalm is a praise to God for his judgments:

O sing unto the Lord a new song:
sing unto the Lord, all the earth.
Sing unto the Lord, bless his name;
show forth his salvation from day to day.
Let heavens rejoice, and let earth be glad;
let the sea roar, and the fulness thereof.
Let the field be joyful, and all that is therein:
then shall all the trees of the wood rejoice.

Psalms 96.1-2, 96.11-12 (1023 BC)

Chagall's "King David" (1085 BC-1015 BC)

  Happy 96th Birthday dear Harold—
  May your 96th year be beautiful,
  fruitful, healthful, and wonderful!

  With joyous wishes,
