I just read on Facebook that one of my friends, who is younger than I am and had kicked cancer’s ass once, is no longer kicking cancer’s ass, and is now in hospice, which isn’t good news at all and just sucks sucks SUCKS!! Do people ever come out of hospice? Sad doesn’t even begin to describe it. I can’t stop crying, which is basically the main reason I’m blogging now and not even trying to sleep. The world can’t afford to lose anymore beautiful souls, and this would be a major loss. How is it even fair that someone so young be so sick? I feel so helpless and sad and my heart hurts and feels like it might pound right out of my chest. And he was doing so well for so long. I have serious doubts about religion, but I am praying so hard my head hurts. If you have a moment, please send a healing thought to my friend Chris.


About Brenda in Nagano

Originally from Chicago, I knew I was destined to spend the rest of my life in Japan the moment I set foot in the country at the tender age of 16. However, I was quite intent on spending that rest of my life in a major city with a full on career, until my Japanese Prince Charming came trotting down from the mountains of Nagano to sweep me off my feet and whisk me away, turning my whole life plan on its head. Two months after moving to Nagano I gave birth to our little Princess Charming, so now I am officially a SAHM and teach a little belly dance on the side.
