Before & After: A Personal Journey

 By: cshimokita : May 12th, 2021-05:19
15 months of social distancing and there started to build a certain amount of friendly pressure among my circle of local friends. Soooo, with their encouragement and in total agreement, this morning I visited γͺおみin her beautiful rustic setting located in ...  

Excellent work!!

I think Naomi did a great job as well...

 By: cshimokita : May 12th, 2021-11:18
the transformation took around 30 minutes including the usual treatments that accompany a haircut in Japan ;-) Casey

Loved my Japanese barber....

...even as a nearly bald guy, Nakajima-san always did a terrific job, and in about thirty minutes. 2,000 yen, no tip : )

I like the no-tip tradition...

 By: cshimokita : May 13th, 2021-21:31
it's always so confusing to figure out the appropriate amount to tip when traveling... Casey

I thought it was a time lapse pic. at first.

I remember having that length of hair when I was a teenager. Looking very spruce afterward.

Any photos from that time frame ;-)

It was the late 60s all over again... I felt like cracking open an old copy of "Narziß und Goldmund" (1930) by Hermann Hesse and going back on the road... the feeling only lasted a few minutes ;-) Casey

Must be a great feeling, did the sakura inspire you to cut your hair?

 By: VinnieD : May 12th, 2021-07:15
I did something similarly drastic when I was 18! My daughter cuts my hair nowadays, which is always a cool moment together

Thanks Vinnie...

Time and priorities change... beautiful father daughter moment... Casey

Ha ha!

hahaha... in fact Naomi kept a few of the longer bunch cuts...

 By: cshimokita : May 12th, 2021-11:36
to donate for medical patient wigs... Casey

The good news is that...

 By: cshimokita : May 12th, 2021-11:39
given another 15 months I will be back in business... ;-) Casey

Impressive transformation.

 By: kev09 : May 12th, 2021-10:23
From Mae West to Cary Grant in under an hour! Regards Kev.

In fact one of the better haircuts in recent years (prior to Feb 2020 of course)...

 By: cshimokita : May 12th, 2021-11:43
It can be challenging to find a good hair stylist ... use to call them barbers and as a kid in the 50s it was USD 0.25 for a child's cut ;-) Casey

Well done

 By: Chronometer (aka yacomino) : May 12th, 2021-11:05

That's what all my local friends are saying....

 By: cshimokita : May 12th, 2021-11:45
It was a fun and thought provoking journey ... Casey

Thanks Seconds...

 By: cshimokita : May 12th, 2021-12:01
unfortunately I was shedding like a yak ;-) Casey

hehehe... too kind ;-)

sometimes it's the simple things...

 By: cshimokita : May 12th, 2021-21:42
normalcy is an interesting concept...

always two sides ;-)

 By: cshimokita : May 12th, 2021-21:43
at the moment I am enjoying the "after" situation... Casey

hopefully lessons learned...

 By: cshimokita : May 12th, 2021-21:49
but as an amateur student of history... fortune favors the ______

hehehe... it's funny about the impact of even seemingly insignificant actions...

 By: cshimokita : May 12th, 2021-21:52
In some ways I feel like Arnold... I am back ;-)

hahaha... recently I have been clearing rocks from my friends property

 By: cshimokita : May 12th, 2021-21:53
here in Nagano Prefecture... being a 'rock star' is hard work ;-) Casey

Hehehe, true that!

 By: amanico : May 12th, 2021-23:36

Haha, γŠθ¦‹δΊ‹ !

 By: Jay (Eire) : May 13th, 2021-01:17
I am due for a similar day of reckoning; 14 months of growth may fall on the barber’s floor very soon.

Funny that I wasn't involved with the process...

 By: cshimokita : May 13th, 2021-05:37
It seemed to be a bigger deal for my friends ;-) For me it made sense to include Naomi in the B&A shots. Just used the smart phone, but it was planned ahead. Casey

Hehe cool to know

you look better on the left.......

John... It's looking a little different since a shower and shampoo...

 By: cshimokita : May 13th, 2021-05:39
Please let me know what your family thinks of the change ;-) Casey

My young one

 By: Quan : May 16th, 2021-07:31
start having experimenting with my hair every 2-3 months. Since beginning of the pandemic, my wife ask me to keep my hair long but I decided not since my girl out of no where able to trim my hair nicely, so I am lucky having a personal hair dresser

What a touching story John...

 By: cshimokita : May 16th, 2021-13:23
Looking forward to seeing you and the family again soon... Casey

Looking forwar

you may have lost your strength, but you look very good πŸ‘

Samson & Delilah is all about relationships ;-)

 By: cshimokita : May 14th, 2021-08:10
and the thing is I am a bit more energized at the moment... go figure. Change can be positive... Casey

at the end of the day it's ______________ that counts.

 By: cshimokita : May 14th, 2021-21:23
most of the time it's family, but we do love our tangents ;-) Casey
