Last Saturday,
I went to Tokyo Dome
for the annual Japan Grand Prix International Orchid Festival 2010.

This year was their 20th anniversary!

The theme this year was "Saying it with Orchids"...

So, with my cell phone pics,
that's what I'll do:

After, I walked across the way to a buffet dinner at Rilassa,
Tokyo Dome Hotel, 3F.


As Nero Wolfe would say;
"Satisfactory!"

Snow Day!




It only lasted a little while,
but morning snow is lovely to look at...

I'm still not up to snuff, yet.
I'll need another rest day
à domicile chez moi!

Well, I've been to London
and I've been to gay Paree
I've followed the river
and I got to the sea
I've been down on the bottom
of a world full of lies
I ain't looking for nothing in anyone's eyes
Sometimes my burden
seems more than I can bear
It's not dark yet,
but it's getting there

Not Dark Yet

-Bob Dylan

I've got a nasty cold.

The weather is cold and wet,
and I'm housebound...

But rather than getting punchy,
I decided to do some Etegami
at home...

My Etegami teacher, Harada-san,
ordered an extra box of the beautiful
Japanese washi postcards for me,
at my request-

I took them home after our last class...

Now I may work at home,
as well as at her monthly class.

I've used some flowers from my balcony garden...

My gig at Tokyo Dome Hotel's Artists' Cafe
was a hit!

A great audience, of all ages,
including friends new & old
were in attendance...

My girlfriend Kristy
was there with her brother & his buddy,
who just arrived in Japan,
visiting from Australia...

The line -up:

Pamela MacCarthy - vocals
Nao Suzuki - piano
Ichi Takata - bass


I wore a red ensemble-

A garnet-red & black velvet tunic;
a gift from my sister,
with black velvet trousers,
beautiful handmade bead jewelry from Akiko-san,
and a most excellent red wool-felt hat
with a red satin & tulle rose on it.

I found it at an antique shop,
while walking along
on my way to my Saturday English-teaching class.

The red color jumped out at me,
much the same way that Venetian red glass in Summertime
caught Katharine Hepburn's eye...

The trees on the hill had nothing to say
They would keep their dreams till another day
So they stood and thought and wondered why
For this was the time of no reply

Time goes by from year to year
And no one asks why I am standing here
But I have my answer as I look to the sky
This is the time of no reply

The Time of No Reply

Made To Love Magic
-Nick Drake
