i became a father.  there is a commercial with that as its tagline.  “i am a father.”  as a play on this, i say, “i am a father dakara.”  dakara roughly means because/since…

i can remember the details leading up to and that followed her birthday.  ever since then i wear a santa claus necktie on the day to celebrate.  she is the best present i could have ever have been given.

in fact, it is her birth hospital that i say is my favorite place in the entire world.  and, i have travelled to many places.  but, that hospital in yokkaichi city, japan, is the number one.

having lived in japan for 3.5 years i wish to "go back to the island" as often as i can. i lived from 1999-2003. i went back in 2007, then again in 2011. i am a full time teacher, so the best time to go for me is during the summer vacation. it works out well because i love the sensational feelings i get in japan during the summer...especially playing taiko and eating lots of ma-cha ice.
