Tonight,
it will be a blue moon New Years' Eve!

This same moon was present the first New Years' Eve
I celebrated here!

2009 has been one helluva year,
good, and otherwise...

I'm thankful,
as I say,
Adieu 2009!

To all my family, my dearest friends & readers
far and wide,
God Bless you all!

'Bless the souls we've lost this year...

I leave with a prayer for next year to bring us health,
wealth, love, and good humor...

19 years ago today,
My son Michio & I arrived here in Japan.

The first thing I remember was the scent of mikans;
a tangerine-type citrus fruit grown here,
and the smell of smoke and burning leaves...

To celebrate this season,
Michio and I had a night out around our town.
Dinner, and a movie:



2 0 1 2
Director: Roland Emmerich (2009)


Wow.
3 hours of non-stop angst!

I loved John Cusack,
Woody Harrelson,
and Chiwetel Ejiofor...
Remember him in Kinky Boots?

Also the cute little Russian girl
with her little dog
and a flying bird!

After the movie,
and a deep exhale,
we walked around in the chilly evening
to gaze at the holiday light displays...

Michio and the Christmas lights
December 17th, 2009



To all my family and friends on the East Coast,
in the midst of this big snowstorm,
I hope you're keeping warm!


Here's something from one of my favorite composer/pianists;
Vince Guaraldi,
and one of my favorite Christmas shows...




"Christmastime is Here"
Vince Guaraldi Trio


A Charlie Brown Christmas (1965)

The holiday season is here!


My son Michio & I decorated the place,
and the Christmas tree,
while listening to my "Christmas 2009"
compilization...



Yesterday,
at 8am, I was up cooking a large pot of
Mama 'Mela's pasta sauce with ziti-

A hit, at every party I bring it to.

I met with my International Salon girlfriends,
for our Etegami session,
and after party/lunch.

December Etegami



I also brought my "Christmas 2009" playlist for atmosphere...





You might've noticed my blog is currently
not playing music.

MIXPOD was fun while it lasted.

Suffice it to say, things changed,
and there was entirely
too much sticky bullshit to continue using it-

So the music player done gone.

Other news:

There are no public
Christmas gigs
for me this year,
so far, to report.

Private parties and events only...

But in the New Year,
on my birthday, Saturday, January 9th,
I will perform once again at Tokyo Dome Hotel's Artist Cafe, 43F...
