Lost and Found in Translation



Star Wars brought me to Japan which turned out to be an amazing journey.
While in Kyoto, I had a yen for a blessing. No, I'm not looking for my dropped contact lens. Actually, I paid ten yens for a blessing from a monk.



I had the opportunity to speak to some Star Wars fans in a mall in Tokyo. They were very gracious. Sitting to my right is Barrie Holland. He played Imperial Officer Lt. Renz in Return Of The Jedi. His signature line in the film "You rebel scum!" was a classic.



We took the train from Osaka to Tokyo. My traveling companions were a wild bunch. Barrie Holland, Ken Foree (Dawn Of The Dead), Lightning Bear (Legendary Native American Actor/Stuntman), and Ian Whyte who played The Predator in AVP.

Ken hunting Zombies in Dawn Of The Dead.

Lightning Bear as a Biker Scout in Return Of The Jedi.


Ian attacks!


Our host was Abbey. He was a bundle of pure joy.


I left Japan with a smile... And a yen to return!

That looks like a great trip. I've never been overseas, but maybe some day. I love your last line. Very appropriate.

So did the 10 yen blessing bring good things to your life? (And how much is 10 yen in dollars?)

Matty,

Your fortune cookie reads "I see travel in your future"

After your next knee surgery. Good luck with that.

Debra,

Ten yens - 11 cents...

A blessing - priceless...

Wow I am so excited. I just wrote about Star Wars today in my blog and about my grandson. He is only 8 but I tell you - he's into it as much as my 34 year old son was and is!

Everyone knows Star Wars - it is the universal langauge that everyone knows.

Glay you had a great trip!
