About this blog:

I kept this blog while I was living in Japan for the last couple of years.  I had a lot of hobbies there like teaching youth, moving, and getting arrested for bicycle theft.

About my writing and me:

My essays are anthologized in Best American Travel Writing 2003, Best American Travel Writing 2008, and Best American Legal Writing 2009.  And say what you want about me, but I do not have a lazy eye; I don’t care what  my friend, Mitzi Akaha, is trying to insinuate with this drawing.
