Four seasons have changed in Japan since I left, but hardly in Hawai’i. My father passed away late August and I rushed back. After a series of events and ceremonies, I returned to Hawai’i with my mother so that she could refresh herself. She did not forget to carry Father’s photo. I was happy visiting sights with my mother that I hadn’t yet seen, as well as favorite places.
The window of the studio to which I moved faces east. Every morning we would wake up in bright natural light, but it was soon too hot for the end of October.
