I’ve been busy.
What Are Visas For?
After my previous entry, and following up on some thoughts that came to me last night, I have the following question:
Preparing to Leave
It’s been so long since I wrote anything here. I’ve been busy finishing off my previous job and trying to address the important things before I go, such as meeting friends whom I shan’t be able to see for a long time.
I visited a police station yesterday for the first time—and it was of my own accord, I might add!
Bishops and Pawns
I’ve been following the British news, and it’s with a detached interest that I’ve watched the furore regarding the appointment of a bishop who apparently prefers men to women. The Church is—let’s be honest—pretty camp, and the clergy itself has not always been known as a bastion of heterosexual behaviour. We can have gay men in government, but threaten to put one into a post that actually requires the wearing of a dress, and suddenly there’s a crisis. It’s all a bit absurd to me. I can’t see that someone’s sexual inclinations are any more important than the colour of their car, or whether they are left- or right-handed.
I’m Still Here
I know it’s been a while, but I’m still alive, all evidence to the contrary. I’m really busy at the moment, with work and trying to sort everything out before I leave Japan in a little over a month. So much to do, and so little energy left to do it...
