I am in Japan right now working on a project with the OPENrestaurant family. it's been wild. folks are sharing some things about the trip here: http://www.openharvestjapan.com/
it's incredible getting to work in new places and find the way to communicate your ways and navigate and learn new ways.
(thanks to david king for sending me this perfect feeling image that he noted as "closeup of water behind a missionary ship, 1797").
