First off it's been awhile since I updated with a journal and most importantly a big thank you to all for the 10,000 and a half hits* (*I know I'm a bit late here, but I finally got around to it. Work and life kept me busy.)
Anyway, I left Japan again about a month ago, even though I really didn't want to leave what I called my second home. However, met up with an old college friend who now lives in Wiki, Hawaii on my way back to Stateside for his wedding... Hawaiian style. Took me a week alone to recover from that party.
As for now, I'm back in Portland, Oregon on another assignment and I for one welcome feeling the cold air that came early this year.
On a side note I'm hoping to have the next chapter to the "Ghost in the machine" story up sometime in the near future. Take care!
