Tenugui mumbling Vol.55 – Hatsuyume (First dream)

standing same place on New Year Eve

standing same place on New Year's Eve

On the morning of New Year’s Eve, I was standing at my usual place at the subway station to go to work. I looked at the other side of the platform, and I found a homeless guy was bundled up in his blankets, and peacefully sleeping. I hadn’t seen him for a long time, and I remembered that he was not there last New Year’s eve. I got a strange warm feeling in my heart as soon I knew he was there, and in his place.

I have met so many great people this year through my Tenugui. They support me, and tell me the stories of their life. The words they give to me, I always cherish, and they bring me good spirits, and send me hope and light. Many?wuhao friends send me messages and compliments everyday, which give me a confidence to continue in my own life.

First Dream - by puff

In Japan, If you have a dream about Mt. Fuji, Hawks, or eggplants on the first night of the new year, you will have a blessed year. For me, dreaming about waking up on a Tenugui field filled with love and energy, makes me feel blessed…

Happy New Year to all!
Wish you all have a great year 2010, be loved and love….

and Peace…

Amazing… Amazing… Amazing…. well, this is not the song for NBA Basketball. By the way, LeBron James was totally amazing last night! Very last second (not a minute), he made a shot and won the games. I am a big fan of his and Cleveland Cavaliers. Oh, I can’t wait to see their next game tomorrow!

Oh, sorry….. what I would like to tell you tonight what is amazing?

I’m sure, any company does online business, always keeps tracking their visitors to their sites. How many people visit the site… from where… how long they have stayed… how was conversion rate… etc etc. Smiling, crying and mumbling… And of course I do same things every single night. We had BIG numbers of access to our website today, and what I found out? Many visitors came from the HGTV Canada! The article about Tenugui and us are on their blog now. Amazing… Amazing… Amazing…
