This blog or hangout is both a continuation and archive of select features that I first originated on Facebook. I hope to continue TULO TUESDAY and WRITING WEDNESDAY here (maybe not every week, however) as well as perhaps add photos of Japanese-style gardens I’ve visited throughout the United States. Thanks for stopping by!


New Discover Nikkei Serial: Silk

To mark the 150th anniversary of the first Japanese sojourners to create a silk and tea enterprise, the Wakamatsu Colony (1869-71), I’ve started a new serial for the Discover Nikkei website, “Silk” The first chapter is from the POV of Jou Schnell, the wife of the colony’s founder. Enjoy! The serial will appear on the fourth of every month. At some point soon, I’ll add a list of all my online serials on my website.
