A sort of overcast gloom has camped over the skies of Tokyo...

Unfortunately, the light is not strong enough for me to paint in.
So, that goes on hold, for today.

Michio has started his Fall Semester
at TUJ.

My first gig at the Ritz-Carlton was OK.

It's a beautiful place to perform in,
with my pianist and bassist,
on the 45th floor lounge.

There are 2 gorgeous Sam Francis paintings,
in this large cavernous room
with a waterfall/ flowing stream,
fresh flowers,crystal chandeliers,
and a lovely view of Tokyo....

I'll be appearing next
on September 1st, Saturday,
and Tuesday, the 4th.

4 Shows from 8-12 midnight.

I've been painting, and trying to keep cool.

Recently we had the lovely annual fireworks display
down by the river...

My son Michio was able to make it this year.

He & I went down to the river early to reserve our spot,
with a tarp with our names on it.
One of many, already laid down, at 9am!

My friends Michael and Hiroshi
also were able to make it this year.

It was a bit hard to locate each other in the large crowd that gathers every year for this event,
especially after dark-
But with the help of our mobile phones and perseverance,
we were all finally sitting together,
checking out this pyrotechnic wonder,
sipping cool beverages and crunching on
my favorite Summer fireworks snack;
ume (plum) flavored chips,
or Natsu Potato, as they are called here...

It's a marvel how this all goes down so orderly...

All the neighborhood people and guests come down for this event.
No cars, and bikes are all parked a short walking distance away.
The highway alongside the river is closed before and after, so people can get home and back to the trains quickly, and safely.

Afterwards, the overhead streetlights resembled moonlight in the trees,
as I walked my friends back to the station.

We stopped at the local.

Michael & Hiroshi

On a less festive note,
recently, my lavender bicycle was stolen.

I left it unlocked just this once,
in broad daylight,
while I browsed on the other side of the chicken wire,
at the plant nursery,
not 20 feet away-
I went inside to pay for my plants,
et voilà, POOF!

I came back to an empty space...

The good news of this story,
is that my son, Michio,
took me immediately over to the new bike store
where he ordered me a brand new bike.

my new bike

My new wheels!

I am so thankful,
but I am more thankful to have such a son.


Recently I updated my promotional picture.
I have a new "look".

I present my new updated photo here.

Its hot as blazes here,
and it means to stay this way for at least a week.

In the very early hours,
from 8 am till noon,
the light in my room/studio,.
is best for painting.
And that's what I'm doing,
while listening to this:
