Just in case you find this somewhere in the ether that is the internet, I am creating a new blog to share my experiences in Tokyo as I finally begin my career as a teacher librarian.

You'll find me here, My Oriental Odyssey and of course in Tokyo! Hope to "see" you :)

Beauty and Innocence

My sister had a precious baby girl on March 23. Brianna Rose has already made our lives so happy and exciting!

We love her lots and look forward to watching her grow up and develop into a beautiful person :)

Where Am I?

Have I disappeared into the blogger universe? Here I am posting--let's see if it's actually out there now!

Just a Thought

You know, sometimes I find myself amazed at how someone as seemingly intelligent as I am can be so stupid when it comes to people.

Happy Birthday To...


Today I am 43 years young and while the prospect of getting older doesn't excite me as much as when I was a kid, I'm actually okay with it!

I am so looking forward to a new year that is filled with possibilities, challenges and goals that are met.

Have a great day--it's on me :)
