    What a sweet comment! Thank you, my dear! It is good to know that you've had similar experiences and have come through. Wow--seven years as a salary man? That sounds hard. You know, I teach people at companies like Hisaki's, and whenever I ask them that simple question, "How are you?" so many of them reply, "I'm tired." Hisaki keeps watching his managers, those who've been at the company for a long time, and he is thinking, "Do I really want this kind of life ten or fifteen years from now?" So he's really looking hard at what he might be able to do in the countryside. My husband suggested that he get some training in how to use heavy machinery, which I at first thought was weird, but now I think that at least it would be something therapeutic to do while he ponders his next move. By the way, I also thought it was weird because my husband (and his father) have always seemed so preoccupied with prestige--you know, go to a famous school, then get a job at a famous company. The fact that my husband recommended that Hisaki learn how to use a backhoe--well, that just goes to show you that Toshi is really growing up.

    I hope your son had a good time in London and that you're enjoying having him back in Japan.

    Thanks for sharing your story. It's so helpful!

    If you have a dream, a talent, a voice – if you have something inside you that wants to come out, go for it. The only thing holding you back is you. Cate Montana
