Retrospective: I’ll first post a few photos from the 1972 Opening Ceremony that my wife Elizabeth attended as well as the 1973 Sho Hondo Convention before I write my reflections.

Notes to self: Arrival, Sake, Sobos, Martyrs, Gates, Spiders, knee deep in Mud, Speeches, Brass Band, Monks, Fujinomiya parade, ice coffee, new friends, old friends, seeking Ikeda at the Head Temple, stomping around 700 year old grounds.
