~ a summer tradition is the Obon circuit. hot summer festivals of dancing, music, games, and good eats. Little Tokyo celebrated its 50th year of Obon dancing. through the years we have joined in for the traditional Odori dances. here is a little east-west fusion. these 2 are not only great Odori dancers; they really know how to rock Obon!

~ everyone is back in school. a lot of new faces, routines, and adventures. as Dad believed, you never stop learning. it's not easy, & at times feels more like a sacrifice, but what a small price to pay to make your life better. give it your personal best. impress yourself. Gambare!
“Just as the wave cannot exist for itself, but is ever a part of the heaving surface of the ocean, so must I never live my life for itself, but always in the experience which is going on around me.”
