With unrest in Libya and last week’s earthquake and tsunami in Japan, it has been a tough few weeks for many people around the world. As a result of this tumultuous time, I have been writing more than usual, perhaps as a form of therapy or meditation. I wrote this essay about life in Japan for the Chicago webzine Gapers Block. You can read the essay here.
Please note: I am trying to post a little in Japanese. Please excuse any grammatical errors. I am still learning the language.
