Great posts from the past: (Eden-like past....)

From: mwedd

July 9, 2000

"I guess our expatriate existence as strangers in a schizophenic setting (caught between Japan/U.S. cultures) forced us all for the most part to relatively appreciate each moment more than, say, the average kid who grows up with the same friends throughout childhood...you had to learn how to make friends on the run...you came to realize just how transitory things could be, and so there was always a sense of urgency in the air, I guess...live for the moment!  Such an atmosphere somehow imprinted upon many of us a deep and lasting connection to this almost mythical, eden-like past...which no longer exists in its physical form any longer"
