Hi, I’m a teacher based in Nagoya, Japan, now living in the diaspora of those who once boldly left their homeland in the quest for adventure and enlightenment and are now trying to figure out how to move on while with every day passing it becomes clearer they will have to stay. What now? How to keep growing and expanding? How to make a decent living without selling your soul?

These are the kinds of questions I need an answer to and I figured -true to the ancient wisdom “give and you shall receive”-it might not be the worst of ideas to start sharing what I have found so far.
