Koto is a Geisha in training.  Koto means harp in Japanese.  She was named Koto, because even as an infant she could make beautiful music on the harp.  Koto can't explain why he is so gifted at the harp, it just comes very naturally to her.  Sometimes she wonders, however, if her harp playing abilities sucked up some of her other abilities.  For example, she finds it very difficult to dance.  When she tried to move around gracefully to music, her feet don't cooperate.  They start to feel heavy like an elephant's would and then she usually ends up stomping around and feeling foolish.  She has a pet goldfish, though, named Hisa, who is very encouraging and never snickers when she tries out her moves in front of her.  

Koto is here.

Joseph and I saw Young at Heart.  Sooooooooooooooo  great.  Please go see it.  I love, love, love, love, love, love, love, love, love, love it.

Here is a snippit of it.  I think he has a voice like Johnny Cash and that his rendition of Fix You by Coldplay is so beautiful.  They also do a couple of Talking Heads songs, and they are my fave-fave-favorite.  
I also developed a minor crush on the Young at Heart choir director.  He's so cool.
