I suddenly thought of Mr. Aso again, just this afternoon. While it has been many years since I have seen him, and years since he has passed, it felt as 'though it were yesterday that philosophy was being discussed; that music and art were being created again, full force, at the Studio that bore his name and became his legacy.

Why did such a poignant feeling arise?

A six year old boy was brought by his mother to my music studio, now in the mountains of Los Alamos, New Mexico.
This boy, who happens to be Japanese, crossed his arms and tilted his head in a way that was uncanny, timeless, and full of spitfire.

The boy did throw a tantrum. I knew that he was not a bad kid, and was in fact, full of curiosity.

Even after all my years of teaching violin, specifically, and being in the art world, I did not know what to do. I don't think I reached him.

Something tells me that Mr. Aso would have been able to handle the little guy.

We never forget. We can suddenly miss someone with quite a piercing intensity.

Kaji Aso would walk into the room say the word WIND and leave. It was 1974 and I was missing....his crits were sharp and spot on...Abstract watercolor use 300lb Arches and get it right. He was also a marathoner and I have done only 3 but I always think of his studio and wondering could I ever run one? thank you Kaji Aso
