Well we are just buying a Mac book here at bic camera in Kagoshima central station. The onlynfree Internet I have found is here on an I pad. Immay be sold. We should be up and running with the Internet and Skype at home by early August. So until then just hold tight. We miss you all and things are going well. However I need to buy a scale that works. Hot days make for lots of beer drinking. and it is hot and humid here. Not quite Africa hot but close. Love Out.

Three, two, one....

Well it is my last night in town.  Holey Moley.  Just had a nice dinner with the family at Chach's place.  Good times hanging out and chowing down.  And tomorrow I leave for Japan.  I don't really know what this next year holds for my family and I.  The desire to look and plan ahead is driving me crazy.  It is so ingrained in what I do and how I do it.  But I am making myself a pledge to try and enjoy everyday for what it is.  When I am with my family I want to be present and say yes to the things I am asked, Do you want to play?  Lets go outside?  Can we make ramen for dinner?  Can we .... together?  I really hope I can make that answer yes every time.  Lets face it, I don't have anything else planned.  And when I am not doing that I hope I will read, think and write. I want to listen to Podcasts and learn to play guitar.  I want to study Japanese and learn to be a fisherman.  And I do want to plan.  I want to look ahead and see if I can make out where my life is going.  And at the same time to stay present.  Well life begins anew tomorrow.  Just like it does everyday.  Hopefully I will notice that and make the most of it.

I wish all you Canadians the best and I will try to make time to blog while in Japan. Keep you all in the loop.

Love out.
