"Horie, Nekozane" (1856)
by Ando Hiroshige
This view looking westward from
Edo Bay toward two fishing villages
Nekozane on the right side of the
channel and Horie on the left.
Hiroshige's Woodblock #96
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!
