Fingers (by Tomihiro Hoshino) by Goh Kurosawa

「 造られたもので目的のないものはないという
 価値のないものもないという
 動かない指を見ながら今日はそのことを思っていた」ー星野富弘

 "It is said that there are no creatures without purpose in their lives.
 It is said that there is nothing worthless.
 I contemplated it today, while I was looking at my motionless fingers." ーTomihiro Hoshino

GOH ~Broken Tour 2017 final (Japan/Myanmar/America)~
theme: "Community Building with My Family My Friends"
テーマ:「マイファミリーマイフレンズ地域社会づくり」

Hi all! I am back in Japan as of yesterday; starting the journey with a live show at ライブハウス鶴ヶ島ハレ (Tsurugashima, Saitama) tonight (Fri Oct 20). Next week in Myanmar for a celebration of the first school opening in Shikui Village, put together by Goen Project, supported by ANA.Japan (All Nippon Arilines) and Elite Acoustics (guitar amp & cables). I will also visit Dream Train (of Japan Heart). Third week, I perform at Life Stage (an assisted living facility in southern Japan) and a cafe they just finished building, as well as a show at LIVE BAR・雷神(Saga, Saga; Sun Nov 5). On Thursday, November 9, I have my first ever one man solo show in Tokyo at Goodstock Tokyo (Ota, Tokyo). Closing the tour this year will be at BRILLIANT STRINGS (Sun Dec 3; Los Angeles, CA).

Oh, and I have a new CD called SOLO (available only at shows). Follow my website (www.ComposeLife.com), and remember one thing... ROCK!

「青い女神暗い天使」 by Goh Kurosawa

"Blue Heavenly Bad Honesty" ...what do you think this song is about?
「青い女神暗い天使」 ...この曲感じることできますか?

Sketches of answers are written throughout my dairy right here. Composed within two days, this song was finished the day before yesterday and filmed/recorded on that same fresh day. The song is about the underlying strength and weakness... a blue goddess and dark los angeles... when we embrace them both, we can arrive at the awareness that love will shine through us all.

Rock on with love!

"A Man Is..." by Goh Kurosawa

2A man is....jpg

 

A Man Is...

A man is not quick to anger
He’s not one who’s quick to brawl
If you see a man bullying others
He’s not a man at all

A man is not a quitter
He’s not one to turn and run
When the going gets rough, he gets tough
He’ll remain till the job is done

A man takes no satisfaction
in seeing another fail
He encourages all to try
and to believe that they can prevail

A man will never boast or brag
or kick sand in your eye
He’ll stand firm on his conviction
with his head held to the sky

A man will always lend a hand
when he finds a friend in need
His character and his integrity
makes him a true friend indeed

--Mychal Wynn

藤 (Fuji) by Goh Kurosawa

This Japan tour was incredible. I am receiving offers, so naturally making plans to revisit for additional shows before the end of the rooster year; thank you all!

すばらしい日本ツアーになりました、みなさん今後ともよろしくお願いいたします... オファーをいただいていることもあり、年内に再び日本訪れたいと考えています、ありがとう!

Japan (remember 2011) by Goh Kurosawa

Hallelujah (https://youtu.be/Z7Cx-__w2tM)... I sing this song, so I remember how I felt when I visited the damaged cities in 2011. Let's celebrate life, every chance we get. Thank you.

晴れるや... この曲を歌うことにより僕が2011年に見て感じた南三陸、気仙沼、陸前高田、忘れません。大切ないのち、生きて感じましょう。 ありがとうございます。
