(do you see that little bird, sitting above the signal? these birds really like sitting on traffic lights so look carefully next time you stop and you'll probably see one.)
there is a possibility that we might be back in japan as soon as april. i have already had a telephone interview which ended in the interviewer inviting me to stay with her in her house in new york. rather positive i think. now i am just waiting to be approved by the staff at the preschool. i am feeling really open and optimistic about this prospect. the school is not in kyoto or even the kansai region, which were earlier criteria for us. the position is in the goto islands off the coast of nagasaki. i'd never heard of the place prior to the interview but after several days of exhaustive research, let me tell you, the place looks like heaven.
also look here and here and here. these images make my heart pound.
hopefully i'll hear back this week so i can report the news. even if this doesn't happen, i know that i will have to visit the goto islands when we do make it back to japan. they look too lovely to miss.
hope you are all well. take care.
