Yes i am the proudest papa with remarkable Ichiro. This is all. Good night. #io (photo by exceptional mama Ryoko)
8 month old Ichiro Stanley Thorvald Olson visiting his great-grandpa Ichiro’s ohaka grave on the 48th anniversary of his passing￼. Great-grandmother Tomiko joined him last summer. It’s all about the cycles.
4 generations of Fujitas, more or less art Grandfather Ichiro and now Grandmother Tomiko’s ohaka (grave) short walk from our home in Tsuchida, Okayama. We cleaned the ohaka, lit incense, fresh flowers, clap clap, bow, bow etc.
Momma brought flowers from home (daffodils and irises I think) note: construction beginning behind
1 more which is really 4￼, regardless Ichiro is the jolliest little guy (with mama Ryoko Olson)
“Top o’ tha Morn to ya pals” says Ichiro on the go…
Me and the new intern are progressing well. Six months tomorrow. Best best best
He’s got a tooth and a bank account, and overalls… What else does he need? Running shoes or ice skates next?
He’s a super adaptable little guy and we take really long baths together
Really amazing – each day more handsome! and now suddenly crawling around. the way he raises his eyebrows at me slays though
PS Oh you can see scrapbooks and other interestingness on my bookshelf including new calendar of sento (public baths) and Douglas Coupland, Generation X (guidebook for “quarantine” life)
Also the chair was free and the desk 2nd hand, also couch, blanket gift from Kemp &’say hello to Richard Brautigan.
2 heads are…
(Note: tracksuit, pappa’s uniform)￼
