It has been a long time since I have last posted. This is due in part to my busy schedule, various friends and family coming to the island and the unfortunate illness know as corona. Things have gone haywire with the world as of late and I am unsure how it came to this point. Further, I am unsure if even post illness whether or not things can truly return to normal. The next blogs may be step into the political realm but I won’t jump too far. They will serve more of an analysis as related to both American politics as well as Japanese. I will delve into other matters but food and coffee will be on hiatus until covid has a proper vaccine.
