I’d like to express my heartfelt gratitude to my 2011 crew, Matt Van Dusen (Minneapolis) and Midori Igarashi (Chiba, Japan). I never saw so much rain in my life than in the 10 days of this kamataki. Matt and Midori demonstrated to me a most admirable dedication, which makes me believe that they possess what it takes in being successful artists or where ever their journey may lead them. I truly hope our paths cross again, Matt and Midori it was so easy to be with you and a delight to work with . . . a thousand thanks!!!
