Higashi Hongwanji's bon dances hold a very special meaning to me. Erick explains it best in the following e-mail that he sent out to a bunch of us earlier this week:
This weekend is a cute little bon dance at Higashi Hongwanji on N.Kuakini St. I remember this bon dance fondly because this is where I met Jalna and her buddy Susie. How can I forget this chance encounter. It was a dark, rainy night and this girl with her new Canon 40D muscled me out of my small one person rain shelter. She said something about she didn't want her camera to get wet. I got to know her while I stood in the rain with my camera in a plastic bag. Ha,ha, an image to remember forever!
