If I could see you in a dream, that would be wonderful.

Eiichi Otaki



Even if you are far away, I can see you as soon as I close the eyelids. If I could sleep looking forward to it, sleeping would be nice .... “If I die and you hold a funeral, I want you to play this song.”, I asked my sons. Of course, singing by the Rats and Star, a lovable imitation, who painted their faces black longing for black people who spun blues that we get a kick out of while receiving discrimination.
