The explosive growth of new Nashville continues to consume what's left of old Nashville, and it's finally dawned on me that if I'm going to get pictures of places like this, I'd better be getting on with it! And so I am.

 

The corner lot this diner sits on is near the very heart of downtown Nashville, and it has become so valuable that I do not see how a small business like this can survive much longer at this location.

 

Case in point, the lot where that construction crane sits was also a small, locally owned diner. It is now gone to make way for yet another high rise residential building.

 

The Hermitage Cafe has somewhat odd hours for a diner. It opens at 10pm and closes at 1:30pm each day, catering to the late nighters, breakfast for the working man, and the lunch crowd. I guess the owners catch a little sleep between 1:30 and 10.

 

Oh, and it's Cash Only, so you can leave home without your Visa, but they do have an ATM inside for those unaware hipsters with no cash on hand.

  

Mermaid's Eye Wampum meditation jewelry (1.5 inch diameter) necklace, 2004, Takeshi Yamada

  

ARTIST’S STATEMENT

 

Mercenaria mercenaria – quahogs are found in estuaries along the Atlantic Coast, from Canada to Texas. The quahog shell is harder than gems like lapis lazuli and malachite, thus, it takes a high polish to turn into a first class gem. The name “quahog” is from a corruption of the Native American word for the clam, “poquauhock”. However, only the “Northern Quahog”, which is native to New England (the region comprising six states of the NE United States – Main, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and Conneticut), has rich deep purple coloration in its shell. The purple color growth ring of the quahog (“Black Eye”; a form of Worry Stone) was used as an amulet, and found at the burial ground of the Native Americans 4,000 years old. And purple is what makes the most-desirable wampum among Native Americans. “Wampum” is a contraction of the Algonquian word “wampumpeage” or “white shell beads strung on a cord.” Wampum was the material object absolutely necessary for the successful functioning of political (diplomacy and diplomatic protocol), social, and religious life among Native Americans. They wore single strands of wampum as ornament. They also wore belts on which purple and white beads were woven into pictorial messages (sophisticated icons). Because purple shell was harder to find, and harder to work, purple wampum was worth twice as much as white. The Ayonwata Wampum Treaty Belt of the Haudonoshaunee (Hiawatha Iroquois Wampum Belt) is the most famous of the wampum belts, joining the Haudonoshaunee (People of the Longhouse) possibly over 1000 years ago. Among Native Americans, the Quahog has been considered as a beautiful and sacred clam as one of the main “passport” to the spirit world.

 

This clam, which could live 40 years or more, is known to feed Founding Fathers from starvation. In the seafood business today, small quahogs are known as “littlenecks”, larger ones are called “cherrystones” and quahogs over four inches wide are called “chowders.” After contacting North American natives in the early 1600s, European traders and settlers used wampum beads as money. In the 17th Century, wampum was the official currency of the New Amsterdam (now, New York) and other states, and you could even use wampum to pay your taxes to the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and pay your tuition at Harvard College then. With this in mind, in 1758, Linneaus himself gave the scientific name in Latin to the quahog meaning “money/wage”. Today, an extract from the quahog called mercenine is discovered as a strong growth inhibitor of cancers in mice, and researchers are investigating its power to be used as the next generation of penicillin.

 

With these unique and distinctive historical and cultural background of quahog in this region of the United States, and with Japanese medieval day’s game called Kaiawase (Clamshell Matching) among high society of Samurai and nobles, I created a series of artworks such as sculptures, jewelry, paintings, prints, drawings, and computer graphics since 2002, when I moved to Coney Island area of Brooklyn, NY, and started harvesting this beautiful marine creature here.

 

It is my hope that my artworks are the vehicles to please the eyes, uplift the spirit, stir the imagination and express conviction. It is my desire to promote a greater understanding and appreciation of the importance of the global nature of the world, its people and the bonds that mutually bind them. It is my sincere wish that my creativity and its products contribute to the advancement of the glorious culture based on the sanctity of life and true humanism.

 

About Wampum:

In a broader sense, Wampum is an English word for gems from the shell of the quahog clam (Mercenaria mercenaria), which Native Americans called ‘poquauhock’. The quahog shell is harder than gems like lapis lazuli and malachite. It also takes a high polish; it is truly a first class gem. “Wampum” is a contraction of the Algonquian word “wampumpeage” or “white shell beads strung on a cord.” Wampum was the material object absolutely necessary for the successful functioning of political (diplomacy and diplomatic protocol), social, and religious life among Native Americans. Not only did they wear single strands of wampum as ornaments but they also wore belts on which purple and white beads were woven into pictorial messages (sophisticated icons). Because purple shell was harder to find, and harder to work, purple wampum was worth twice as much as white among Native Americans. The Ayonwata Wampum Treaty Belt of the Haudonoshaunee (Hiawatha Iroquois Wampum Belt) is the most famous of the wampum belts, commemorating the joining the Haudonoshaunee (People of the Longhouse) possibly over 1000 years ago. Among Native Americans, the Quahog has been considered as a beautiful and sacred clam as one of the main “passports” to the world of ether or spirit world. The wampum belt was also used as a formal wedding proposal gift from a man to his potential wife and a proof of marriage just like engagement and wedding rings used today. After contacting North American natives in the early 1600s, European traders and settlers used wampum beads as money. In the 17th Century, wampum was the official currency of the New Amsterdam (now, New York) and other states, and you could even use wampum to pay your taxes to the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and pay your tuition at Harvard College then.

 

About Wampum Black Eye:

In Algonquin languages, Suckauaskeequash meant ‘black eye’. The Black Eyes are the earliest known talisman form of wampum. The Black Eyes are America’s oldest amulets and good-luck-charms, found by archaeologists in Native American graves over 4000 years old. Wampum Black Eyes were believed to be beautiful, mythical and lucky because they were part of ‘the face in the clam-shell’; a face of the sea goddess with deep purple eyes. They are spoon-shaped, a naturally-shaped ‘Worry Stone’ into which one’s thumb fits as if it were made for it. Each Wampum Black Eye of Takeshi Yamada is hand crafted and unique, one of a kind, and first class jewelry.

 

About Worry Stone, Wampum Black Eye Necklace and Earrings:

The Worry Stone is one of the most popular and powerful Good Luck Charms found in numerous ancient civilizations world-wide. When you feel physical or emotional pain, anxiety, or stress of any kind, rub the Worry Stone between your thumb and forefinger and experience its magical calming affect enter your body. The gentle pressure of the stone on your thumb is said to release endorphins, your body’s natural painkiller. Carry the Worry Stone with you always in your pocket or wallet. Yamada’s hand-crafted one of a kind necklace and earrings utilize the Wampum Black Eye with its 4000-year-old unique and distinctive proud history, and dignified culture of America and its people. These are truly America’s original and proud first-class timeless jewelry to own and wear.

Singapore......... Night City

Singapore's Chinatown is the traditional Chinese quarters of town, and while the entire city is largely Chinese these days the area does retain some of its own charm. The area is also known as Niu Che Shui (牛车水) in Chinese and Kreta Ayer in Malay, both names meaning "bullock cart water", a reference to the carts that used to haul in drinking water.

 

The area between Pagoda Street and Smith Street has been tarted up considerably for tourists, but workaday Chinatown continues south and east, merging seamlessly into the Central Business District. text from Wikitravel........

  

The Internet has provided us with numerous services since its creation.

Business leaders were asked the following question: “If you were to give the CEO of a similar sized company your top tips for growing internationally based upon your lessons learned so far, what would these be?”

 

By far the most mentions refer to making the effort to understand the market being prioritised for cross-border growth - its people, its culture, its politics, and its language. ‘People factors’ dominated the responses given.

 

Businesses looking to prioritise the EU are most likely to mention ‘don’t try to impose your own culture’ and ‘get the right people/ use skilled people.’ The former is also important when targeting North America. Businesses prioritising the Middle East and Africa are most likely to stress the need to ‘meet people/ face-to-face/ spend time on the ground.’ The advice given in reference to the BRIC and Asia Pacific markets and South America is more evenly distributed.

Risky Business

 

What appears to be, at first glance, a cute bunny, I have discovered is something entirely different. The cottontail is an “adrenaline junky!” It’s human counterparts are base jumpers and big wave surfers. This amiable rabbit lives to take risks and may very well thrive because of it. Allow me to illustrate the point.

 

One of the cattle ranches I worked for in my youth had a winter feed lot for yearling calves. Once we had made the rounds of the meadows feeding the cows, we loaded up the wagon one last time to drive up and down the feed racks filling them with hay. We did this morning and night. One tractor driver, one or two ranch hands on the wagon and, inevitably, the owners dog, Kelpie, as a ride-along.

 

Kelpie was an Australian Kelpie. (Ranchers put minimal effort into the naming of dogs and horses.) Kelpies are drover dogs in Australia which means they are tireless at driving herds of cattle and sheep ahead of them. However, they have a tendency towards a trait which in my opinion renders them counterproductive as North American cattle dogs. They bark. Barking alarms mother cows which immediately turn around en masse to defend their calves. This creates pandemonium instead of progress.

 

Hence, poor Kelpie was relegated to sounding the alarm when anyone came down the road and providing companionship on wagon rides. Kelpie’s short caramel colored coat highlighted the muscular shoulders and powerful hindquarters on his rangy body. He was built for a sprinter’s speed. These muscles would become conspicuously more taut as we approached the gate to exit the feed lot.

 

Right next to the large gate post along the coral poles was a thick clump of greasewood. Greasewood is a native succulent which thrives in white alkaline soil where most plants, even sagebrush, can’t grow. In the middle of this wide, dense bush was a rabbit den. A cottontail had burrowed the perfect entrance under the spiny, impenetrable branches. It could disappear down the greasewood hole in an instant.

 

After we finished feeding the calves, this cottontail would invariably position itself in plain view, enticingly distant from its greasewood refuge. As we approached the gate, Kelpie could barely contain himself until what seemed like the perfect moment to bolt off the wagon like the proverbial shell from a canon. In three strides he was at full tilt bearing down on the hapless cottontail which would turn and make a loping, complacent retreat. With only inches to spare, the cottontail would disappear into its lair and Kelpie would have to put on the skids to avoid a collision with bush and coral pole.

 

This scene was repeated — Groundhog Day like — twice a day all winter long with the exception of cottontail holidays indicated on a calendar only to be found among Beatrix Potter’s private papers. However, there was a nuanced variable to these events. It seemed like the cottontail was placing itself by small degrees farther from home base. I began to suspect that our protagonist was testing the limits of the system; that this game was also some kind of instinctive imperative towards the refinement of its species. This posed to me the chicken and egg conundrum. Which came first? Evolution or instinct?

 

Think of the level of sophisticated thought in which this already highly advanced cottontail was engaged. It had to calculate Kelpie’s speed, the distance Kelpie must travel, the distance it must travel to its burrow and the speed it must travel to make its successful escape very close. All of this was executed with what appeared to be an unflappable confidence. A conspiracy theorist might also suspect that this rabbit was practicing a type of reverse Pavlovian conditioning. Kelpie was not only getting addicted to the chase by keeping it close, he was also being trained to accept failure as a foregone conclusion. This event must always have the same outcome even in dog dreams.

 

But is this all just practice I wondered. After all the real adversary of the cottontail is not the farm dog but the hawk, the eagle, the coyote. Thirty-five years later Kelpie and the cottontail barely exist even in human memory with the exception that they might find a place in yours. However, a few months ago I was watching a cottontail exploring the shade under the travel trailers in an RV park only three miles from the aforementioned ranch.

 

It suddenly froze and looked hard to the south. I looked too to see my brother’s pigeons fly-up in alarm and begin wheeling around the big trees across the road. Then coming low across the field below me towards the RV Park was a large Red-tail Hawk. The cottontail moved to a spot some twenty-five feet from the fence which was lined with a thick growth of rabbit brush. I knew from watching as I waited for my clothes to dry that its den was in that undergrowth. It just sat there and waited as the hawk drifted over our heads and moved on. I have no doubt that this cottontail’s risky behavior was just "business as usual."
