Journal Entry – 8.18.2018

It is 3:25 AM on Saturday August 18th, 2018.  I’m still jet-lagged but was able to sleep an hour later this morning so assume that is progress. Life has changed again with the end of the Japan summer trip, school starting and almost back to our normal routine.  There is no Hoshuko today and we’re…… Continue reading Journal Entry – 8.18.2018

Now, when I read my news in the morning it is a word tied to something…… Continue reading Healthcare Debate and a small rant on selfishness (nonpartisan)
