I have an interesting job teaching private English lessons to adults. At the beginning of class I ask questions about their families, their hobbies, their work, their plans for the weekend or for a report on what they have done the previous weekend to let them practice their conversation skills. One of my students told me he and his wife were going to a lecture program on Kabuki. In the course of our conversation I told him I was interested in Kabuki but didn't know a lot about it. He confessed that even though he is Japanese, he doesn't know a lot either. I really enjoy getting to know my students through these conversations.
I was very surprised and really touched when this student brought me these gifts after attending the Kabuki program!
