The third annual Japanese festival held in Santa Fe - another success for JIN. So much fun! We saw beautiful clothes and crafts for sale and watched some interesting stage performances (including aikido practitioners demonstrating unnatural ways to punish their bodies). Ate good food, especially the homemade mochi - mmm. By far the highlight was Art Lee with two women of his wadaiko group, Tokara. Everyone stopped whatever they were doing - his performance was intensly magnificent! Great show.

reclining dream

I dreamed I was reclining on my pink plastic daybed, listening to T.S. Eliot recite the Four Quartets... "I said to my soul, be still, wait without thought for you are not ready for thought". Then, I thought there was an owl, about to tickle me with his wing. Motto cards floated down from the past. Was it really a dream? Or just playing around with Photoshop!
