It's now Sept 10 and while I'm on holiday this week it's about time for school to be starting in Japan. This will be the first time that I haven't been on hand for the start of a new semester since Mutsumi and I left Thailand to spend a couple of months traveling SE Asia. After ending that journey in Atlanta, I started teaching part-time at GSU and Dekalb Community College, I think in the fall of '94. By the fall of 95' I was teaching in Kuwait, and then spring of '97 I was staring classes in Fukuoka. I'm not unhappy to be here, just feeling a little nostalgic for classrooms and getting to know 400 new faces.
