Nelson Visit

Amy and I drove to Nelson on November 7, two weeks after papa passed away. We ate and drank and talked. And laughed. Sitting in my parent’s place, surrounded by my father’s work–his furniture, his art, his minutiae–I decided to build this website. He and I talked about websites sometimes and he experimented with blogging several years ago but never got the hang of it. I built an early version of this site after I visited in the spring, but by then he was no longer interested in such things as he was starting to retreat into his private world, beginning the process of dying, I suppose.

I built this site on Remembrance Day, fittingly enough. We had just returned from the Remembrance Day ceremony at the Japanese Canadian cenotaph in Stanley Park where the father of Trooper Michael Yuki Hayakaze of the Lord Strathcona’s Horse (Royal Canadian) talked about losing his son in Afghanistan on March3, several days before he was due to return home. No father should have to bury his son . . .

I took these photos as Amy, Taiyo and I were about to leave for the drive back to the Lower Mainland. Left to right: me (John), Amy, Daniel, Fumiko, Taiyo, Rachel, Charles. Daniel is holding Tod’s cat. That’s Rachel and our mum below.
