Father's Day

To celebrate the day, I enshrined the memory of my father in a little cedar Shinto altar I bought in Kawagoe.

It's not the ornate Buddhist butsudan that Japanese families use and I realise I'm not using it the "right way" but it looks like something Dad would have built himself; he enjoyed working with wood and miniatures. I like it and I think he would chuckle and shake his head at me if he knew what I was up to, enshrining him as Shinto kami.

Enjoy, Dad.

Be assured:
there is a kami with your father's katra ready to visit every time you smile.

He might chuckle and shake his head, but he'd be smiling. Love the bee, the photo and the thought.
