Mist and fog coat the Nihonjin mountain landscape and Zen permeates every moment.  I am totally blessed to be able to live this life and have the opportunity to serve like this. Spirit warms my heart and people innocently awaken my humanity.  Japan offers a broadening breath to my already full life – all my relations here in a beautiful rhythm that speaks gently to my soul, reminding of who I am. I become renewed through the contact, a great sense of humility and gratitude.  I am reminded that I can never understand another deeply enough or appreciate them fully – love this.  It is a beautiful world and as one of my close friends says, a great life awaits for those who can have and live it.  See you soon ~ Gary
