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 visited Alaska in February and took these spectacular photos. I have never seen Aurora in my life, even though, I can feel the great energy of nature through his photos.

We are very small compared to Mother Nature. All the struggles that we have in our lives feel so tiny under the never ending stardust.
Life is very hard and beautiful… Sometimes, I loose my direction by many distractions inward and outward in my daily living, but I always can find my way – just like a traveler finds the Polaris in the sky.

Thank you very much for your support, and love of Tenugui through out 2009.
Tenugui and wuhao friends… they are my Polaris.
