Well, here's to blowing away the year 2011 and blowing in this New Year of 2012!

While I am actually more partial to the Chinese New Year... I love any reason for a party and a celebration! Thank you all for welcoming a newbie into this great musical tradition and this fine community. I truly appreciate all of the guidance, encouragement and sage wisdom freely given by you all. Idea

I wish everyone here a wonderful new start to your continuing journey with the shakuhachi. If it were possible, I would suggest all of us blowing Ro when the clock strikes 12:00 AM. Of course, being an International community, this is understandably impossible. Tell you what.... why don't we each let out our own gust of wind, wherever we live, as the moment arrives? Time is an illusion, after all.

Blowing Zen to usher in the New Year! I suppose that in light of said Zen... there is only the now and only this point in the present moment. Be that as it may, let us still celebrate the passing of the old and embrace the dawning of the new! Thanks folks, you've all been most kind. Okay


Be well and practice often, Jon

Hey Jon, Great idea! May you and yours have a healthy and joyous new year.

I have two little ones and haven't been up to ring in the New Years since 2002! But, I did play Auld Lang Syne on the old bamboo flute just earlier on the beach in Barrington, RI.



Happy New Year all!

Ouch! Very Happy

Actually Kiku, your comment does connect deeply with me in a nostalgic way. I could say, without a doubt, that the reason I am a musician today is because of Gene Simmons of the rock band KISS. Seeing Gene blow 10 feet flames while playing the electric bass under a giant spinning disco ball rocked my world. I was never the same again Shocked (Coincidentally, the date was August 16, 1977, the night Elvis died. May the King rest in peace).



Deep bows, Perry
