Lin, Tim, Greg, and I, along with Hijikata’s ghost, began to work collaboratively in 1986. Whatever importance this event may hold seems to me now to lie in the word and. Who we were, when we met, how we proceeded, what we produced, all seem products of the togetherness, the conjunction. Since each of us was several, there was already quite a crowd.
