I shall try to define myself in a sentence with a pithy comment at the end:
I'm just an English bloke who lives in Canada after marrying a Canadian lady he met while living in Japan. Yeah, that old cliché.
Aimee already posted something by the wonderful Utada, so here’s my favourite Japanese song that’s not by Ms Hikaru. From what few parts of the song I can translate, I believe it’s about not giving up, today is the number one day, even when you can’t see a way out, fighto fighto, etc.
