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.
