The Winter Blues have been looking to snag me,
but I refuse to get caught...

Not when there are movies,
and friends with birthday jam sessions goin' on!

Yesterday, Michio and I went to see the new Mr. Bean movie,
Mr. Bean's Holiday.
If you scroll down on that page, you will see a fun poem written about the film...

Hey Wendy, This Is Michio On His New Wheels !

It was a perfect way to shake the doldrums
and have a few laughs.
I, too, have been daydreaming of making an escape to Cannes,
so this story was right on time!

Michio and I were armed with a bag of gummi bears,
2 Milky Way bars, and we split a 1/2 pound Hershey & Almonds
chocolate bar.

Michio is a big Bean fan, going back to his childhood...

I recommend this film to anyone who needs mood adjustment!

We were so inspired by the ending of the movie,
which featured the entire cast of the film,
and the whole population of Cannes beach
singing along to Charles Trenet's "La Mer".

Michio was doing that "Bean" walk out the theater.
This film showed me the "bigger picture"...

Tonight is the birthday / jam session of a friend of mine,
J J Vicars.
It's going to be at Ben's Cafe, Takadanobaba.

JJ is a fun guy, and I'm lookin' forward to helping him celebrate!

Also, Happy Birthday to my friend and drummer extraordinaire
Jimmie Smith.

My new iPOD list, COLD WINTER 2008:

Gute Nacht (Franz Schubert) - Hermann Prey, baritone, Karl Engel, piano
The Court of the Crimson King - King Crimson
International - Chali 2 Na feat. Beenie Boy
Hide and Seek - Imogene Heap
Shango Tango - Dr. John
Just Fine - Mary J. Blige

So it goes
The summer blooms and fades away
Like moonlight falling on a bed
And there can be no solace in remembering
The words we never said


-Sheryl Crow

R.I.P. Heath Ledger.

His performance in Broke Back Mountain
was so touching-

Truly, he was a shooting star.

Deep in the Winter
I'm dreaming of a warm beach
to lay a blanket...

I looked out my window this morning,
and it's snowing!

It's been threatening to
for a couple of weeks now.

Here's some shots from my mobile phone camera,
of the kids walking to school...

Greetings !
And a special hi-dee-hi to all my compadres
of the persuasion...

I hope the New Year is progressing well...

I have taken away most of my holiday decorations,
all except the Christmas Tree -
I will cling to that warm light show
until Monday...

I have noticed this over the years here in my little corner of
the Tokyo burbs:

This time of year has nice sunsets.

Maybe it's the dryness and unclouded skies.

But when the sun starts to get low on the land,
the light seems magical on all it falls upon...

Here's my Winter Haiku:

January's here-
It creeps deep into my skin
and it brings such light!

My birthday is coming on Wednesday, January 9th.

To send a greeting,
a Candygram,
a key to my own personal studio/ condo in the South of France,
or buckets of diamonds, emeralds and / or rubies,
press Contact on the left!
