The trip to Jamaica

I went to Jamaica in the Caribbean Sea with my husband  last weekend.

The flight from New York to Jamaica was not a bumpy flight, so we had a comfortable flight travel.

It was our first time visiting Jamaica, so we were exited talking about our trip until arriving in Montego Bay international airport in Jamaica.

 

When we arrived at the airport, I was surprised that most of the people were lanky and looked like Reggae singers. I felt that I could hear the Reggae songs around me.

 

The hotel that we stayed in was not so gorgeous, but nice and cozy.

The weather was mild and it was nice breezy everyday.

Beautiful blue Caribbean Sea was at the front of our hotel, we could swim with the tropical fish.

We went to the center of city the next day because we wanted to see the out side of the hotel even though we could have enjoyed just the hotel all four days.

 

The city was so crowded. There weren’t any tourists except for us, so a few people came up to us and talked to us.

They said,

“Where are you from?”

“I am chef I know a good restaurant near here.”

They were a little annoying.

 

We enjoyed river rafting the next day.

The raft was made of bamboo.

The river was surrounded by a lot of trees like a forest.

We enjoyed the nature of Jamaica and our guide’s information as he rowed the ship.

In the evening, we could see a beautiful sunset at the sea.

We could see the shows that had Reggae songs, dancing, DJ, and any other performances after dinner in three nights.

I played the cystalbowls two times in the morning.

Even though I couldn’t see the morning sun that time because the hotel faced west, the crystalbowl’s sound expanded out nicely by the calm sea wind.

The blue sea of Jamaica is the best one I have seen in my life.
Even though Jamaican’s life is not so rich or convenient as far as I saw, I think that is why the nature of Jamaica is so beautiful.

I had many good experiences this time, so I hope to visit Jamaica again.

The Beginning of 2016

Happy New Year!

 

How was your New Year’s?

I was planning to run in the New Year’s Marathon

at Central Park on New Year’s Eve with my husband and my daughter

( She visited us for only 5days from Japan) .

 

However, I caught a cold, so I rested at home.

Even though I missed running with my family,

I was fortunate to greet the New Year by playing the crystal bowls.

My home and I were quickly filled with these brilliant sounds.

 

 

My daughter gave us a Japanese New Year’s ornament.

I ate Japanese noodles (soba). Soba is usually eaten by Japanese on New Year’s Eve.

I cooked traditional Japanese New Year’s dishes before the New Year,

decorated my home with the ornament, and we enjoyed a Japanese style New Year this holiday.

We will start work tomorrow, but I cannot imagine how my 2016 will go.
I will spend my time as best as I can, and I am excited to see what will happen.

I hope I will play the crystal bowls & piano much more than last year.

I also hope to reach many places and many people with my sounds .

I hope it will be a wonderful year for you, too!

Thank you for the year 2015

I held a crystal bowl & piano concert in San Francisco bay on Dec. 12th.

Thank you for coming to my concert even though it was busy for us

because of the end of this year.

 

I want to thank everyone who came to the concert during the busy holiday season.
San Francisco is very special place for me because I lived there from 1993 to 1999.

My children grew up there, so I have many fond memories from that time.

 

My concert was held at the Bethany Presbyterian Church.

It sits on a hill near the San Francisco airport.

There were many huge trees outside surrounding the church,

and children playing everywhere.

I felt relaxed and at peace there.

 

IMG_3470
There were many stars hanging from the rafters

but it seemed like they were floating above us.

 

Here is a picture of me playing at the church.

It is hard to describe but I felt a strange sense of gratitude

facing towards the altar.

 

The audiences laid down on the rows chairs during my crystal bowl performance,

so I couldn’t see most of the people, but I could feel them.

 

Everyone relaxed and opened their hearts to the message.
Everything in this life exists for a reason,
Everything in this life moves like waves
in the ocean,
We always have to resonate and sympathize.
Beautiful waves tend to resonate with
other beautiful waves,
so we should try to be in touch with our true nature.
Thereby making this life into a peaceful world.

Have a nice new year!!

【About my concert in September】

I performed twice in September. The first performance was in Sedona, Arizona and the second was in Shasta, California. At both I played the crystal bowl and the piano.

I am so fortunate to have been given the opportunity to play at these two special places in the USA.

My concert in Sedona on September 18th.
My Japanese friend Asako danced along to my music.

My concert in Shasta on September 22nd.
I performed for the people who attended a meditation event.

I was so happy to play the song “The sound of Small Brook” which I composed when I visited Shasta 2years ago.
When I composed this song, I imagined and expressed the stream of mount Shasta.

I want to thank everybody who came my concert!

[ Music is my life Part4 ]

This story is the 4th time of my music history.
It will be started to tell about my crystal bowl life!

Please read from part 1 if you don’t read before this page.

2. My life with a crystal bowl

When I heard a crystal bowl for the first time, I was so surprised that it felt

like the sound came inside of my body, as if I drank it. I was fascinated by the pure and clear sounds that I’d never heard before. I decided to play the crystal bowl immediately, and then I became a performer for many people without planning to do so.

When I played it, I discovered new things every time, one after another.

I was so happy, especially when I found that it is important to focus on each sound; sounds vibrate and resonate with all things in the world, like waves. A crystal bowl has two huge strengths, which are healing and purification of our body and mind. Those are extremely helpful to change the condition of the many people who listen to it.

I of course know that music has huge strengths for us because I have play piano through my life so, I decided to play the crystal bowl as music, not only sounds.

To be continued….
