A few days ago I took a bike ride to a nearby onsen.
It was both relaxing and refreshing,
and a nice way to get acquainted with the surrounding seasonal changes.

January 9th, 2016




My birthday celebration/Live Jazz show,
was a total success!

Me and The Trio, were in great form!

It was my first time to work with Shingo Y. on drums,
he was fabulous, as was Aoki-san, and Alan G...

It was a great fit!

To all my long-time fans and friends,
and newer ones, thank you so much, for all the love;
and coming out to support me!

My son Michio was there,
it was a really great night...

At the end of the night, with Aoki-san’s help on piano,
everyone in the audience started singing “Happy Birthday” to me!

”Red Ayame, 2015”



How can anyone
just ride by and not see this
most gorgeous bloom…?

I have been experimenting with a couple different image-editing programs…

I tried the 30 day trial of Pixelmator,
I like it, and I am still considering a future purchase…

Next, GIMP.

This program takes some getting used to; relearning mechanisms,
but it is a nice alternative to Adobe Photoshop,
which I once used implicitly, but has since gotten entirely too uptown, for me…



Here’s my first GIMP photo-portrait :

Michio and I went to "Electric Town" yesterday,
to search for my new computer.

No luck, for me, but Michio scored with a new scanner/printer...

My iMac search continues, while I temporarily use a WINDOWS pc.

it totally takes some getting used to, but I couldn't miss my son's birthday post!
