I want to thank everyone who took the time to read the first book excerpt. Those that commented provided some great feedback and suggestions. The first of which is changing the title of this site and book. As you can see, it is now “From 10,000 Lakes to a Rising Sun.” This captures the spirit of what I have written in the fifteen chapters of the book.

Based on the new title I am rewriting the introduction and have removed the first excerpt. I will post a new one in the coming weeks. For the time being I will continue to post musings and short stories.
