I have thought about making the calendar shorter this year - i.e. two months per one page. Then we already have enough people:

Jan-Feb: mare_serenitatis
Mar-Apr: mare_serenitatis
May-Jun: shione123
Jul-Aug: Jun
Sep-Oct: D.
Nov-Dec: Lea

I already have Jun's page. Shione and D. can you also send me your pages soon? And Mare, could you send me at first one page? Then we would have one page free for any case and if nobody will want to join later, then I can ask the second page from you.

Hugs,
Lea.

I have a couple of pictures. Just have to think of philosophy :?
Pictures may be used for any seasons.

no problem :)
I haven't started yet because I didn't know which month I'd get. When is the deadline?

I would be glad to receive the pages as soon as possible. So it would be perfect if you can send me one page already today or tomorrow.

Deadline will be 14. November.

Hugs,
Lea.

You could send me a picture without philosophy for calendar cover.

Hugs,
Lea.

Thanks for the info :)

Jun, how about a few lines from a Japanese poem? They are all very philosophical (at least the ones published here in the west). Sei Shonagon also wrote very interesting (and sometimes amusing) philosophical thoughts in her "pillow book" (枕草子)

OK, I already sent August picture to Lea, and will send two July pictures.

The first is two persons at a park.
I will write a poem by Sei Shonagon.

これを見よ上はつれなき夏萩の 下はこくこそ思ひ乱るれ

Kore wo miyo
Ue wa tsurenaki
Natsu-hagi no
Sita wa koku koso
Omoi-midarure

< Look at me, though my face looks calm, but I fell violently in love with you, like lespedeza in summer.>

The second is a mountain called Komagatake.
If you see a white horse on the face of the mountain you will be promised a bumper crop the year.

Lea you can choose what you like better.

Jun just confused me.
I was under the impression that it was going to be one picture for two months?
What exactly is the deal this year?

I don't know if the poem by Sei Shonagon is good for calendar or not.
I sent Lea a picture for August in 2009 and two pictures for July so that Lea can take one of them if she likes. If she doesn't like either I will send another picture.
If anyone can send her a picture for July I won't send anymore.
I will keep pictures for the next calendar of 2010. :lol:

Thanks! I think that I will use the Sei Shonagon for July+August page and will use the previous 'August' page for cover. And maybe the mountain-picture will be also used somewhere. ;)

Hugs,
Lea.

I just emailed you something to the starline addy.
Hotmail just up and down graded and I could not find your other addy, but it did, it merge the two, luckily after I sent my picture.

Just sent my two pics to the account from where you mailed me.
Just in case, I put both online on my server:
January/February
March/April
