It has been some time since my last entry. I thank those of you who continued to visit the site and who have offered your support through comments. I appreciate your patience.
There have been many changes in my life, most importantly that I am no longer in Tokyo and have moved back to New York City in April 2004. I had an amazing run in Japan, almost 3 years, with no regrets (other than perhaps not learning to speak Japanese). I am sure my experiences will continue to be important and relevant to me for my life.
I am happy to be back in New York but am missing Tokyo. I have always been and will always be a bit of a Japonophile. My first days back were spent at Japanese restaurants because if felt familiar.
By the way, the picture is me.
