Kate - thanks so much for your kind comments -- it really means a lot to me, since I admire your infrared work so much!
According to my folks I've received quite a few postcards and my mom loves the moth from Mike C -- she thinks it would be even better in colour! I'll have to leave my comments for everyone for when I actually see the cards when I get back in September. These exchanges are so infectious! Hopefully I'll have something interesting from Japan to print in the next round.
