It's been a while since my last post, but I've been busy. Last week was Golden Week over here - several holidays that fall in a row, making for a meaty holiday - and my friend Jeff visited. Perhaps more on that another time.
For now, just wanted to let you know my status and add another link to the sidebar, to the Creative Minority Report, a witty and well-written Catholic blog I've been reading lately.
My name is Paul, and I am an American Catholic currently living in Japan and working as an English teacher.
The "mission" of this blog is two-fold. One, to relate some of my experiences and thoughts about living in the land of the rising sun. Two, to post news relating to my main interests - usually religion and politics, although sometimes including other random materials. As I may seem bleak or cynical at times, I beg your indulgence. God is indeed everywhere, and through Him there is hope. Although there are patches of light, we do live in a dark world, however. How can we persevere? I recommend faith and a sense of humor.
I hope you enjoy! If you like what you see, please check back every now and then, and feel free to leave comments.
