Tenugui mumbling Vol. 57 – Heavenly music Fred Hersch

Thursday, January 21st, 2010

My dear friend took me to the Village Vanguard last weekend for my pre-birthday surprise. New York is an amazing place, you can go to listen to great music anytime, just walk or jump on the subway.

I have never had a chance to listen to Jazz before I moved to New York. It was more than a shock to me when I?heard live Jazz for the first time here. Passion, emotions, improvising… you won’t hear exactly the same notes again, only once in your life, It’s Jazz…

I could not stop my tears when I listened to Fred Hersch’s CD for the first time. And now… Fred was playing his piano in front of me…. His sounds are so pure like a stream… or like whispers of wind… or beauty of life…

Life is very interesting and has many different forms, so does music. And?I believe that our meaning of life will leave something in this world, like his music. They?will stay forever in our hearts…

I would like to leave something in this world someday… But I am not sure what I can do….
maybe something with Tenugui?
I’ll think about it later…

- The night before Christmas -

I would like to send y’all a short poem today for this special season.

It’s 4am now and I’m watching you sleep…

I’ve seen the sunset in the ocean in so many countries.

I’ve seen moutains kiss the sky in so many places.

I’ve seen desert’s sand glow from the sun.

I’ve seen the moon reflect it’s comforting watching over me from a mountain’s lake.

… but nothing in this world is as beautiful and as peaceful,

the sight of your face while you sleep…

The night before Christmas, you are the best gift from heaven.


Have a happy holiday season, and God bless you and your family…

“Winter in New England”

Winter in New England is one of my favorite times during the year. I really like it when the seasons change.

The designs on my Tenugui show aspect of the season – snowflakes, muffins, ice skates and winter hats.
