I heard the news of Sensei Tanaka death this morning.
I join many in mourning the loss of this incredible woman. I did not study with her, but was fortunate to take classes with her at PAWMA. Her demos were out of this world.
What I remember most though is her smile. And I remember sitting next to her at the PAWMA bazaar selling stuff. One year, she showed us how to make funny origami hats out of dust cloths.
I so wish I had paid better attention and could make one today, but I was laughing too hard at the time to actually learn.
I remember. Salute.
