The world is a beautiful place

Today was such a busy day full of running errands. I went into Manoa in search of a place called Great Life Bentos that sells macrobiotic lunch boxes, but she was closed today unexpectedly. Despite being disappointed at the closure, I was so happy to know that she is there and that I have more […]

Tofu and frolicking

http://images.heartmath.com/email-images/iq-tip/iq-tip_2005.html I couldn’t believe when I read this in my email! Here I am, getting ready to leave Japan, and emptying my home and life of everything I don’t need, and suddenly this appears, which seemed to say exactly what I have been going through. I am giving up teaching English to do macrobiotics, and […]
