Well here I am in Germany.  There were many things that sold me on the job that I do and one of them was that I could live internationally.  My wife and kids are Asian-American (Korean) so my goal was always to get to Korea.  Try as I may, I have never been able to get...

I know people close to me have been wondering how I got to where I am now ideologically—how my ideology is expressed in my life choices and the choices for my children that I am supporting and encouraging. 

When I left America in 1991 part of the reason was I did not wa...

It's been quite a while since I posted here.  All my posts seem to end with "more soon" and then a month goes by.  Lately I've been relishing my space offline--lurking about online, reading and "liking" things as appropriate, but devoting the bulk of my energies to mor...

Every year my bank gives me a bunch of things to help me get through the year: an address book large enough to be called a notebook with maps of Korea, detailed maps of larger cities, and subway lines; pens; wash cloths; wall calendars; and desk calendars.  I like the...

Here it is, coming on the middle of July…it’s nice to be back and revisit this blog.  Used to be I took the summer off from blogging, but if last year is any indication it may be that summer is the only time I have to blog—at least for the next few years.  See how that...
