Life in Kansai Japan, which includes my university work in Kyoto, my house in the hills above Kyoto in Otsu... an active life for a recently remarried widow. A dad of two glorious young adults (Kai and Zen) and a new baby son named Bo... Living the good life while striving for inner peace and a balanced perspective.
Extraordinary quiet... White to gray as sunset downs, beyond our Western higher ground, here on snowed-in Hieidaira. Nested, I have begun the game of low-card diet... a way to highlight rituals and invigorate sacrifice. Relationship shift as Valentine's Day articulates ambiguities and unresolved tendencies. I am free between semesters. I order the training package from the Giggling Guru, Madan Kataria, on line from India. I want to laugh and make my classes even more fun in the coming academic year... thinner, more cheerful, and free. Like a single long stem rose cut for romance, destined to die in a voluptuous display of beauty eternal. The glowing retina burn of welding torch passion.
