About Me

I'm an expat living in the Far East.

Journal Archives

Hello, everybody

I am an expat who has spent much of his life in Japan. Naturally, I want the best for both Japan and the US.

Over the past few years, i have ricocheted around various progressive sites like a pinball. The philosophy that I have developed after living in Japan for so long seems to be a bit different from that of the average American. And I'm not talking about Zen or anything like that, I'm talking about just life in general. I like living in a country where you don't have to worry about school shootings, or road rage idiots threatening you with violence (super heavy fines/punishment for road rage incidents in Japan now), where the crime rate is relatively low and you can feel safe just about anywhere you go. But at the same time, this is a country that has been threatened by some of its neighbors from time to time, including now. And many people I have encountered on other sites don't seem to give a crap about what happens over here.

So, that's the situation I'm in right now. As I said, I hope for the best for both Japan and the United States, and I hope that I can make friends here who feel the same way.
