My stamps come from Bokuden Matsuda, Fukuoka, Japan. Traveling to Asia brought on new changes in me. I became their brother and slept in their room for ancestors to be reverenced. I was introduced as a friend of the family.
We climbed Mount Munakata lots- to go to the very top to the Shrine for prayers and clapping hands and bowing. All my times there started early in the morning to wait for our walk. Climbing stairs to start our climb with a great stack of broken pots on the entryway. A Bambo Forest so thick your skin turned a new shade of green on pink or tan, your color complexion. Grandfather Matsuda always walked with me and introduced me to visitors that I was a family member. I felt very honored there. They will never forget our bombing them.
