Easy Rider


“The long shot of Masahiro on his bike fading in the distance through a genteel road of Tokyo evokes a certain quality of melancholy. It’s an image of a boy going past the rites of manhood, the strictures and strangeness of an alien culture; his own crafting of a worldview- the poetic and pragmatic, the moral and spiritual; a boy soon to turn around a certain bend and certain to face the vagaries of life as a strong person- a universal man. And this transition is what for a parent like you makes it overwhelming and filled with longing.” –(A comment I made to my cousin Tina’s facebook post today)
