To assert that the earth revolves around the sun is as ridiculous as a claim that Jesus was not born of a virgin.

-- Cardinal Bellarmine [at the trial of Galileo in 1615]



Welcome to my Homepage!

I'm a junior college teacher in Sapporo, Japan. I was on sabbatical for the 2007-2008 school year doing research in history, CAI and learning Japanese?
The one year away from a schedule also make it possible to go back to the Boston area, both for research and to spend time with my mother. I am very grateful for having had the opportunity!

If you'd like to learn more about me, check the topics below. I'm going to try to keep news updated related to Personal, Work and Research topics.

May I be peaceful, happy, and light in body and spirit.
May she be peaceful, happy, and light in body and spirit.
May he be peaceful, happy, and light in body and spirit.
May they be peaceful, happy, and light in body and spirit.

May I be safe and free from injury.
May I be free from anger, afflictions, fear, and anxiety.

Do we regard our time, talents, energy, money, material posessions, and other resources as gifts from God, to be held in trust and shared according to the Light we are given? How do we express this conviction? - Quaker Yearly Meeting Queries
