Over the past 2349 consecutive days of this silly blog
it seems that people like seeing the mess involved.
Maybe more than the finished project, they like the mess?
Okay, I can do that.

I'm betting you can tell, there's not much planning ahead?
Just a lot of playing and see what happens.
This one took about 13 scraps of paper.

The backside: ready to address , stamp & mail.

What's messy at your place?
Or are you a neat freak?
Hope I hear from you, and thanks so much for visiting.

William Christopher Ford is a great young man. Now 52, 
I still think of him as the talented teenager I used to try to 
compete against, what seems like 100 years ago. 
A young man of character, strong work ethic, as well as 
amazing talents. You know the kind where you watch 
and say to yourself, Wow!

Chris is a Sensei at his own Kaizen Dojo in Torrance and 
has been in movies and more. Lately he has been directing. 
He and his collaborators have made a stunning short film, 
The Last Dojo. Chris asked me to view the movie before 
release, in order to identify the students featured in the film.

I did. It is wonderful. 
Chris told me he had made it as a love story 
to Demura Sensei and his students. 
He did just that, a wonderful tribute.
I cried, but then I'm ancient and sentimental.
I think anyone, even without martial arts interests
will love this beautiful movie. 
Students will be touched deeply.

There will be a free showing at Mckinney Theater
28000 Marguerite Pkwy, Mission Viejo, California 92692
Tonight, Friday, June 11, 2019 at 8 PM – 9:30 PM

Maybe I'll see you there?

A smile for Friday ...
