This writing is triggered by a dream, a vision of how to pass on this blanket in a good way, to a relative now moving to the east. This Chamiyo Blanket was given to Peg Weaver at Oberlin College, sent by her parents likely purchased as they rode the Santa Fe Railroad to visit Glessner -Chappelear relatives in Los Angeles, and stopped in New Mexico where there were Train Stations along the way.
From Peg Weaver's memoir (1993)
Later Inez Chase and Harry Chappelear Glessner would winter in Phoenix AR, in a building called the Westward HO. The hotel officially opened its doors on December 15, 1928. They took the trains during the era when trains were still "the way to travel" https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Westward_Ho_%28Phoenix%29
New Beginnings, looking to the East, the direction of the rising sun, and of the state of Ohio, the birthplace of Peg Glessner in 1910... Also noticing the sound in Japanese of the word of Morning....I don't speak the language and recently my nephew, Thoska in the D-Lakota tradition, Aaron Charles "Charlie" Engler married Saki, a woman from Fukashima Prefecture in Japan. I hope to travel to Hawai'i in June to celebrate and try a bit of my Nipponese that I learned prior to visiting Japan in 2011 for 9 days. おはよう Ohayō - Ohayou gozaimasu （おはようございます）
I was inspired by Charlie's learning of the language, and that helped me navigate the Tokyo subways!
