In a fog...


View from the top floor...
A different perspective
but is it clearer?

Special thanks to Nao Suzuki
for an invite to her private party
at Le Deco Gallery...

My friend Michael and I went together,
this past Saturday.

It was a blustery May evening,
walking along in Shibuya...

That feeling of early Summer was in the air;
that small slice of perfection that occurs
before the rainy season starts,
and the hot, humid, Tokyo Summer
begins...

Once inside,
I met other artists, an Opera singer,
photographers, an actress, a music producer,
musicians, writers, lurking bon vivants,

and the gallery owner;
whose birthday this happened to be...

I sang a few jazz numbers
with Nao on piano.

The roster of performers was spontaneous...

Michael played a few of his original works on the piano...

We left that evening with a feeling of being sprinkled with pixie dust...

This time of year is perfect for visiting gardens,
and walking outside!

One of my English Conversation students
brought me a "Matilda" rose from her garden, yesterday...

Recently, one rainy day while walking to my dentists office,
I noticed the new Ginko leaves...

Today is the birthday of my dearest Marishka.

We became friends when we were both about 13.

I caught her eye with my waist length hair, and odd outfit;
a lime green zig-zag hemmed dress with matching tights.

She caught my eye with her lovely brown eyes and welcoming smile.

We were friends all through school,
up until today.

I love her dearly, and today I want to say



Happy Birthday, Mary!





Oye Como Va
Santana


I remember sitting on the roof outside your bedroom,
listening to this together...
