When Life Gets You Down, Use a Sword

I will post soon about the awful weekend I had.  I’m still digesting what went down.

In the meantime, here is my brother swinging around a sword and demonstrating his Hapkido and weapon’s technique on the beach near Enoshima Island.  He loves martial arts and is a first degree black belt in Hapkido.

He fashioned that sword himself using our dad’s power saw and equipment.

When I was in my twenties, I moved to Japan and met a man there. We embarked on our adventure through life and love. I have lived with him in Japan ever since. We want to start a family, but that is proving difficult. I struggle with infertility. We almost had a child, but that ended in tragedy. Now we enjoy each day and hope that one day we'll hear the pitter-patter of little feet and the bubbly laughter of a child. In the meantime, I enjoy writing, love, studying, traveling, and working. These posts are my thoughts and stories of my life here.
