(An essay on woman empowerment)
At the turn of the 21st century, I embarked on a road to a second career. After fifteen years of teaching under my belt, I decided to launch the new millennium with a writing profession. A Japanese magazine located in Tokyo jumped started my writing career when it hired me to write feature stories for its cover.

A Garden Never Was
“How could anyone fail to grow a garden in the jungle?” my supervisor once asked me.
My horticulture nightmare began when I served as a Peace Corps volunteer in Africa. I was advised to grow a vegetable garden so I could maintain a healthy diet of green fibers at my isolated post in the jungle. This idea horrified me. How could I acquire a ‘green thumb’ after having every plant ever given to me died within a month?....(READ MORE)
The Loss of a Pet Meant Much More...
It was the day after a heavy downpour that my Akita dog, Taki, had a swelling above his right eye and a puffy right cheek. He appeared to have a fever as he stood trembling in the brisk cold morning ....(READ MORE)

Ayu Fishing in Kitani-kyo
When the Japanese summer gets too sultry and unbearable, all I can think about is something cool. I want to eat something cool, or drink something cool, or jump into something cool ...(READ MORE)
