Dr. Hans Laetz Obon with Catrien Ross, 2015

August 13-16, 2015
Obon Letter for Dr. Hans G. Laetz from Catrien Ross

Dear Hans:

In Japan, it is Obon, the August 3-day festival of the dead.

So I am grateful for this unusual way to honor your returning spirit.

I especially want to observe this first Obon since your death last year – your so-called nibon.

At the front door, a lighted fire points the way, welcoming and guiding your spirit here.

Cucumber and eggplant have been picked fresh from the garden and your spirit animals stand ready.

The cucumber horse serves to carry your spirit here as swiftly as possible.

Your departure on the eggplant cow is meant to be much slower, a reluctant leaving when Obon is over.
