It’s been almost 3 months since I last posted on this blog! It hasn’t been three months since I have written one – I have written several drafts but did not have energy to finish them. Blogging has been a big part of my life in the last 15 years or so, and I intend to keep it that way. I need to figure out how to do so.


Many new things happened in the last few months. I am engaged to be married (yes – if you take a look at my life list, you can see how I had had low expectation of ever finding someone I want to marry, but I miraculously did). Life is very different when you have someone to talk to every morning and night, someone to cook for, and that you cannot spend all weekend watching an entire series of a TV drama and knit 12 hours straight. It is wonderful, yet it needs a serious getting-used-to. I haven’t reached to the point where I can contemplate how things are changed in my life. I will eventually get there, I guess.


Another big thing that happened recently was that I got to scratch off another item in my life list – I went to ICELAND!!! I never imagined Iceland would come before some closer parts of Japan to visit. I think I can post some images from the trip on this blog post, if you can check back in a few days. I just don’t want to take time choosing photos before publishing this post. That would surely cause this post to remain in my “Draft” folder forever.
Iceland was, as I had dreamed, beautiful and magnificent… and strange and barren, all in a curious good way.



Last but not least, we now have a space in Portland. I am not sure how that happened, but it happened. We are trying to start something new, while our business in Japan is still struggling and in the process of figuring out. It feels like, everything happens in a series of incremental decisions, each one being very very tiny, yet in accumulation, the decisions lead to something big. Things are a bit out of control, and I am not sure where they are leading us towards.


Anyway, that’s it for now. I am just very afraid if I try to write something grand, I end up not posting this at all. So, I am keeping it small and simple. See you again, hopefully soon.
