Thank you soo much for messages (like the one quoted below)
here on tumblr, to my email and on Facebook!
I’m seriously touched, and it makes me feel even more convinced that
I AM doing the right thing, and hide indeed knows what he is doing when
he is inspiring me to make a WEB through music.
A web of friendship and LOVE that reaches across borders and cultures;
A PINK SPIDER WEB that works through MUSIC and within people…
and touches our HEARTS!!
” I just love your posts! I guess I am kind of living vicariously here XD
Took a lot of guts to do what you did, I admire you quite a lot.
It’s also a joy to run into another passionate adult music fan.

Pink Spider Path

hide – and the pink spider path……

Why am I posting this tonight…..

because when I start doubting I need to return this and
reframe myself back into the spot where my
Pink-Spider-turn-around started
it was OK to JUMP…

or wrong…. I don’t know if it is OK, or good, or bad,
really… I don’t even know where I live after February 13th….
let alone what part of the world I will be in….
but so far this risky business has worked out ok and I’m on a

Musical trip almost every day and a high from all the previously
unknown encounters.

I have met so much Love lately, and almost always this is because
of a shared belief in miracles and in hide

Every day I love.... and yet this is without even having romance
in my life… maybe that’s good, because I might just die if that
would happen too….. from overflowing.. ha ha ha

and yes, between you and me…. of course that would be nice too
one of these days… a romance… a passionate relationship based
on mutual love.







DIE – this guy really captured my heart tonight…
They all did, and I felt so at home here tonight!
THANK YOU so much for that feeling everyone who was here at
The Club Sensation  in Yokohama
and DIE-san I promise I will take time to learn 日本語 (^.~)
(We had some minor issues with language barrier while sitting and
chatting after the gig)




Julafton with Pata, DIE, Michiaki and tetsu

Ra:IN – DIE, pata, michiaki and tetsu…
and now just guess…. how fun was this evening…?

FUN enough for me to say I don’t missing out on X-mas this year.
There is  part of X at least on stage 😉
Pata who also plays guitar in X Japan.
He started Ra:IN in 2002 with Michiaki and Tetsu.
DIE joined 2007.
Of course it hurts a teeeny, tiny bit to be here today…
so far away from my family in the USA and,
right now it is December 24th in Tokyo ..
and Julafton (Christmas Eve) in Sweden

I take a rocking night with this guys any day over anything
in the world!!!
