Steps from the Kyo


And that road home is long and winding. I will leave Kyoto this morning, fifteen years to the day after arriving in Japan. Our plan at the moment is to walk into autumn, through Kumano, across Shikoku. Winter in Southeast Asia, India. Back to New Mexico by spring. We'll see how it goes.


I'll write here when I find time and the muse and an internet connection. Once a week I hope, but probably less. Do drop by from time to time...

It was really good to spend one more day with you guys before you started off on this long and winding road. May your walking take you to where you need to go. See you stateside in the Spring...

Fifteen years! You are certainly going to find that you are looking out of Japanese eyes for quite a while, maybe forever. But what a journey you have in front of you to discover your home again, what an adventure. I hope very much that it is sweet.
