Do you know?about “Freestyle Rolling”??

I just received great photos from Tenugui lovers Tito who does Freestyle Rolling. I didn’t know anything about this new sport, so I checked their web-site www.irollny.com
WOW!!! They are amazing!!!! Action, vision, style and music… all mingled together, it’s Art of Rolling!

Tito sent me a sweet tenugui story, so I would like to share it with y’all;

“I lived in Minami-Uonuma, Niigata Japan for two years as an english teacher for elementary and junior high school students. Those were the best two years of my life!
One day, a friend gave me a tenugui as a present, and from that day on I never took it off!
I really love wearing my tenuguis even here in New York City.
Most people do not know about it, so they always ask me,
“why are you wearing a towel on your head?”
It’s really good conversation starter, and it gives me a chance to live and share my love of Japan and it’s people with native New Yorkers. It connects me to Japan, and besides that I just think its looks COOL!”

Thank you, Tito for sharing your Tenugui story!
Yes, you are very cool with your Tenugui, and your Freestyle Rolling!!!!

A Japanese photographer TETSU took these beautiful photos in Nigata, Japan. The colors of flowers and a butterfly
They are perfect together, and this special day today!

A Forget-me-not (wasure nagusa 勿忘草) is one of my mother’s favorite flowers. I have not spent Mother’s Day with my mom for a long time… since I left my country when I was eighteen years old…

Forget-me-not… of course I remember, Mom!
A small white butterfly will bring you a word with beautiful Spring.

Happy Mother’s Day, dear Mom in Japan and Texas!!!!
