Hello dear May,
how does it feel to get my first shot of Moderna vaccine? Well, my left arm hurts a bit and I feel kind of tired (but this could be due to other stuff).
While I was going back home, I had a conversation with a taxi driver whose young daughter dreams of studying and living in Japan. Sounds like a great idea, although, and sorry my Japanese friends, I don’t know how are things now for foreign women trying to have a life and a career in Japan. What is the place of women nowadays?
So, study, I said definitely for this great culture, and then go and see if whatever she proposes will find a welcoming reception.
I know something about trying to make it in different places from where we have been born. And I have had roadblocks, cultural shocks etc
One essential thing has been not to insist past a certain point. When our basic values, or actions clash with a cultural or sociopolitical system, there is no need to insist and we need to take a shortcut. Or a long cut. Another way, in other words.
The essential thing is to keep walking!
