a little something in appreciation

taiko

taiko

today is sunday.  it is taiko performance day.  i had a potential late night in which i opted for earlier.  it is a good thing too because i played outside for less than an hour and it was very hot.  if i had not slept last night today would have been not so fun.  in fact i knew the songs better but my hands were opposite most of the time.  but i am getting better.  like charly i can feel it.  he knew when he was getting smarter.  i know when i am advancing.  in fact i was able to give harris teeter eco bags to the mothers of the group.  it felt good because they drive their children to many places and help with what azuma sensei needs.  i gave the fathers some snacks.  i am so happy to give a little something.  in fact i was able to give the other women players their omiyage, too.  i can only think of 2 more people i have to give.

having lived in japan for 3.5 years i wish to "go back to the island" as often as i can. i lived from 1999-2003. i went back in 2007, then again in 2011. i am a full time teacher, so the best time to go for me is during the summer vacation. it works out well because i love the sensational feelings i get in japan during the summer...especially playing taiko and eating lots of ma-cha ice.
