Hayato's Return

On April 6th, I woke up to the sound of my neighbor Hayato’s rubber ball bouncing outside. I opened my second-story window and we chatted a bit. He was killing time, waiting for his friend to arrive; then they were off to the batting cages to enjoy their last day of Spring Break.

The following day they entered the 3rd grade.


  1. Dear Pat,

    I am someone who came across My Little Dead Dick ages ago (I can't remember when), kind of forgot about it, and stumbled across your blog again a few days ago.

    I don't really know what to say other than, keep writing and keep taking photographs. As I read through your archives, I feel that I have discovered the motivation to keep going on, and I thank you for that, from the bottom of my heart.

    Thank you, for the words and the images.

    A passerby.

  2. Dear Soshi,
    I guess it is mutual because when I am down (which is often and I begin to question everything that i am doing), little messages like this from people I don't know, gives me the strength to keep going as well...

    Please don't be a stranger.
