Things I Miss
Flowers year-round
Quiet neighbors
My big apartment
Sleeping on the floor
Speaking Japanese
Sea Mall
Looking out over Kanmon Warf
A nice salary
Fairly reliable public transportation
Cheap health care
Shibata-san's bread
Watanabe-sensei's jokes
Okonomiyaki (especially from Kawamoto)
100-yen movie and CD rentals
The adventure of living abroad.

    I can relate to having a list of things I miss. And sometimes it feels sooooo far away and long ago, and othertimes so close. Of course Japan really is sooooo far away!!

    Do you think you'll ever go back?

    A mom really would like to keep her children from the kind of aches she experienced but it's not to be! Leaving a place and people you love is like ripping a lung out.
    You left out kawara-soba, dear. And cool malls.
    I love you, dear White Rabbit.
    If you want to speak Nihongo, call Motoko-chan. She would be thrilled!

    You're right! How could I forget KAWARA-SOBA?!

    And to Shayna: yes, I hope to go back someday, though I have no idea when that will be...
