To Mark and Kozue: Thank you for finding me on the internet, and for helping me in the garden! You are people who understand the interconnectedness of everything, and who want to make the world a better place.
Congratulations on your new job in Japan, Mark. I hope that it is everything you wanted. I only wish you could have found a job here that you liked as well, so that you could stay local and do good works around here. Of course, Japan might need you more, only time will tell.
