Selfie against to my lung cancer stage4.

I’ve taken selfies in restroom for a while. Naming it as “selfie against to my lung cancer stage 4”.  トイレセルフィー気に入って暫く撮って来てますが、最近診断された私自身の肺癌に因んで、「セルフィー:肺癌ステージ4に逆らう」(日本語タイトルイマイチかな。。。)と命名。


liked this with facial expression and hair, long bathroom tissue hanging down from dispenser and leak stain on the ceiling.

at the fried chicken place in Flatbush, brooklyn. June 20, 2019. Right before the last class teaching this year. Happy summer.



Treatment started

Over a month and 2 weeks, since unexpected hospitalization from ER, finally medical treatment has started today. June 20th, 2019. It was my last day of teaching this year and first day of my medical treatment. 緊急入院から1月半。やっと、治療開始。6月20日、2019年。くしくも、今年の教える仕事最終日が、治療初日になった。

Books from Japan.

Great gift books by my old friend, Keiko, just arrived after one month, how come taking so long?, from Japan. I’ve known the dancers, editors, photographer, author, related people from both books in some ways in different degree, and seem familiar places, Tama in Tokyo where I am originally from.  I happened to be cooking kabocha pumpkin when the sipping arrived, and the smell reminded me my life there over 30 years ago. Love them a lot.  Thank you, Keiko-Nee-San.


Black book: Kubikukuri Takuzo by Ryuji Miyamoro. White book: Danser Disappears by Muronoi Yoko.
