Omg I am so sorry to hear that you got so sick! I hope you are on the way to recovery now. It sounds like you are. It's the time of the year when we get sick.... I also lost my voice for three days this past week :-(

I haven't heard the sound of joya no kane for ages but just by listening to your bell ringing tradition it brought back the memories of it from every New Year's Eve in Japan. I like it how it was so calming just before the time changed to another year. What a joy of the tradition you are leading.

I admire your commitment on 365 ....are you thinking about restarting in the new year? Likewise I really enjoyed looking at your work. 

Wishing you a happy happy new year!
