Sensei and I

Sensei and I " 'So what do you have to do? Dance... Just don't let your feet stop' said the Sheep Man"--Haruki Murakami (Dance Dance Dance)

For those of you familiar with Murakami's novel 'Dance Dance Dance', Harada-Sensei is like my Sheep Man. But not in a creepy, damp and dark sort-of-way.These past two and a half months together was an absolute gift of a lifetime. It is good-bye for now, but I know that this is just the beginning. I will keep dancing as long as the music plays.

With Hiroko Harada-Sensei; Studio Aikoen, Shinshiro, Aichi Prefecture, Japan; May 2013.
