Thanks so much for all of your support and encouragement over the years. It’s going on a decade now that I’ve been writing this site, not as often as I’d like, but in the end, well, guess I got done more than I expected. There’ve been some good times and some hard times, but mostly just, well, time. Life goes by, Jeez, so quickly.
You know, every evening after stumbling home from the izakaya, I tumble into my futon and ask, “Ken, what the hell’re you still doin’ here?” First it was the food and some booze, then a job, then a woman, and now I absolutely have no idea. Or maybe I never did. Anyway, if Japan’s got any answers, it’s sure not giving them up easily. So I suppose I’ll just keep on keepin’ on and writing about it. And along the way, thanks for reading, seriously.
