It's been hot, sunny, & dry around here lately.

Not surprising,
it is typical September weather for Tokyo.

Yet I was starting to feel uncomfortably disheveled...

I remembered a scene from one of my favorite films;
"Out of Africa"-

Karen Blixen is on safari with Dennis Finch-Hatton.

She's hot, irritable, and can't seem to drag a comb through her long, tangled hair.
Dennis (Robert Redford) says; "Wait...

Out of Africa (1985)
Meryl Streep, Robert Redford

Director : Sydney Pollack
Music : John Barry

Love it.
Love that scene.

Since Dennis Finch-Hatton was not available,
I went to my hair salon,
for a shampoo, cut, & blow dry...

That feels much, much better...

I'd rather love a jaunt
through the clouds;
over waterfalls, valleys,
and among the pink flamingos!

Today was the birthday of my late father,
John P. MacCarthy.
He would have been 74.

As I rode along on my bicycle
on this beautiful blue sky day,
Rosemary Clooney singing "There's No Business Like Show Business"
on my iPod,
with that swingin' beat
just like my father used to nail
on the drums-

I thought of him today.

My memories of him have not all been rose-colored,
but as time passes, I cling to the better ones...

I wrote a tribute to him before.

He was born and raised in The Bronx, NYC,
and he didn't mince words.

I wont either.

I miss him.

John P. MacCarthy
Lake Ontario
September 13th, 1935 - November 25th, 1988

But come ye back,
when Summer's in the meadow...
Or when the valley's hushed
and white with snow...
Yes, I'll be here in sunshine or in shadow
Oh Danny Boy I miss you so,
Oh Danny Boy...

The good, the bad,
and the ugly...

Today, and all my future September 11's,
I will take a minute to remember
what occurred in NYC, The Pentagon,
and a field in Pennsylvania
the morning of September 11, 2001...

On another day,
I might/could plant a tree.

and to once again, enjoy the camaraderie...

Ikebana #56, 9-07-2009

The warm, Indian Summer days

I'm wondering if kids returning to school in the USA
will study harder after they've been instructed
by the President to do so?

If I remember my school years correctly,
whatever authority pushed my way,
I usually made a concerted effort to go in the other direction...

I was always drawn to the class clown;
the heckler who made me laugh,
and think...

Here's my "9" iPod update:

Parasol - Ralph Towner/ John Abercrombie
Nefertari's Dream - Hossam Ramzy/ Phil Thornton

I haven't had a lot to say, recently...

Whenever my hermit mode creeps in,
I sometimes turn to the fabulous world of
fashion & cosmetics!

Over a year ago, my mom sent me a new type
of paint-on lipstick that has since become
necessary equipment!

Are you hip to these?

Unfortunately, they don't sell them in Japan, yet.

But I am fortunate my family and friends 'stateside
send me stuff...

Big thanks to my youngest sister Bonnie,
for sending me a new batch of colors!

Revlon's ColorStay Overtime™ Lipcolor
is a most excellent product.

The color choices rule,
and this formula really lasts-
Even after eating, drinking, etc.

An occasional touch up is all you need!

And combined with Dior's lipliner/brush,
and either a cold cream or a good remover,
you can't go wrong...

I recommend outlining your lips first, then color in, and over, that line...
