Been a long road to follow, been there and gone tomorrow, without saying goodbye toI know I've become more-than-scarce over the last few years, but I was having a great deal of fun being a teacher in Japan. Never being one to do things only half-way, I devoted myself to the task as much as possible, working stereotypical Japanese hours and filling the occasional gaps with martial arts practice and nomunication. Those were, to say the least, a fricken awesome five years. Even if my art didn't progress at all, I am now essentially fluent in Japanese and stronger than I ever was.
yesterday... Are the memories I hold still valid? Or have the tears deluded them? Maybe
this time tomorrow, the rain will cease to follow and the mist will fade into one more today...
And I have a cat.
But now I am moving on from that path in my life and looking forward to other things. I hope to have more time for drawing, writing, reading, working in the yard and playing games. Not that I'm anything near a gamer, but I do like some and having time to actually play them without 4-month intervals between saving would be nice. For the time being, I will have a part-time job with no necessary preparation, so in essence I will only be working 1/3 the hours I was in japan.
I will miss my students and co-workers like the plague, and learning to live in the states again will be challenging, but there was nothing like that experience and it has shaped me into a better person with a wider understanding of societies and culture.
