Unrequited Love

Sometimes when I read some of the responses to some of my blog entries (god, don’t you just love the word “some”) I get the distinct impression that my readers (some) think that I am suffering from an unrequited love affair with Japan.

Then I read this entry from Naive’s guide to Everything in the world (one of new favorite web blogs) and I began to wonder if my readers are right.

I thought about it long and hard (okay maybe not so long), after reading Naive’s take on it, and I’m convinced it’s either love or hate or I’m straddling that thin line between the two. But it’s definitely not unrequited. I feel the love here (maybe not in abundance, but enough) and I feel the hate here (abundantly) and so I don’ t think whatever I feel is unrequited.

Today, I’m loving Japan and I actually felt a little love returned today (smile and the whole world smiles with you). But, tomorrow, who knows? (-:

Thanks Naive for making me smile again…man did I ever need it!

Words I love…

Everybody is a star
I can feel it when you shine on me
I love you for who you are
Not the one you feel you need to be
Ever catch a falling star
Ain't no stopping 'til it's in the ground
Everybody is a star
One big circle going round and round
