I regret I have been inattentive to my web site.
When left the United States for Japan in October 2019 I closed my Facebook account. The decision reflected my frustration with a platform that had become more of a source of annoyance and irritation that diminished its purpose to keep me in touch with family and friends.
I thought the use of my personal web page, paulmyer.com, would both fulfill my desire to stay in touch as well as enhance my ability to share my experiences and commentary of a new life adventure of living in Japan. Sadly, as the boredom and anxiety of the pandemic took its toll on my energy and enthusiasm, I failed to sustain the effort required to adequately update and maintain the site for a small but very loyal audience.
While I will retain the paulmyer.com site and seek to revitalize it as a personal archive for those interested in its content, I have decided to try using Facebook to reconnect and share news and experiences with family and friends.
I may also be directly reached through my e-mail or Japan phone number. Of course, if you are heading to Tokyo, please do get in touch before or during your visit.
I look forward to connecting again.
Having received my first vaccination on May 22; second coming on June 26 I am grateful and relieved. However, given circumstances here with continuing infections, a slow and mishandled governmental response and growing concerns about the potential threat posed by holding the Olympics, continued caution is required.
Nonetheless, I am enjoying the spring season and fortunately my expanded activities (including tennis and golf) can be realized within the limits of our Adachi location. Barring a post-Olympics catastrophe, I am looking forward to getting on with my plan this fall to enjoy both my favorite Japan experiences as well as exploring new ones.
