Dream: I was with my brother at a concert. I was attending a gig given by a friend. A large section in the middle was inaccessible, as it was reserved for the VIP - the Silver Triangle as they called it. But there was nobody in there. Then the concert began. There was a gigantic screen. The stage was miniscule. And Björk appeared... Björk? For some reason, I was totally indifferent to that (when I love Björk in real life). My brother and I left after the first song and we walked toward the nearest metro station. During all the time, not a single word was exchanged... 

Sad and odd.

New contract for the year signed with Mr. Kang, my landlord. Off for another year in this beloved flat of mine! I'm very fortunate to have such an understanding landlord who hasn't raised the rent for the past 8 years, and who sympathises with my situation as a musician. But he also knows how I take good care of his flat. "Your landlord likes you very much" my friend Ansel said. "And he's a feng shui specialist, so he knows it when he sees a good tenant!

So now, I can enjoy wandering from one room to another, wearing the sarong that I have recently have made in Vietnam after a unique piece that was offered to me by my dear goddess dancer friend Kristina!

Dream... I saw Jo in my dream last night. What happened before that scene is now blurry, but I remember seeing him coming out of the theatre after a rehearsal of NINA. As always I was very happy to see him, especially after such a long time. He told me that he was considering moving to another country to try something different, after nearly 15 years running his company Noism. I told him I was sorry I wouldn't be able to come to Shanghai to see the performances of NINA. Then it occured to me that if I was talking to him, I must be whether in Niigata, or in Shanghai with him... Then, of course I woke up...

I'm still trying to find a way to come. The visa issue is the one big obstacle. 

NINA - materialize sacrifice... Our first piece together. It changed the course of our lives. That was in 2005. I have rarely met an artist with whom I feel such a deep connection and creative kinship.

And Sawako will be dancing The Dream of the Swan next week in Hangzhou and Shanghai. That solo is our latest creative effort. I wish I could see it in realy life...

I dreamed that I had a baby daughter who had super powers. It was exhausting....
