3rd generation fortune child learning more and more everyday polishing myself to become a better buddhist. Used to live in San Jose California now in Japan. Doing activities here. Thanks for this SGI family site and lets all continue spreading Kosen Rufu in our areas.
Hi there-- obviously I am not active on this site and, not being a facebook user either, don;t really understand how this works. But I got an email notice from someone here and decided to take a look and respond to your comment of long ago!
I am a real person, a WD in Maine, have been practicing every day for 33 years.
I started a new group for English Speaking members in Inaka areas of Japan. I tried to send out invitations to it twice, but the computer just kept thinking. I would like to someday create some exchange meetings with different inaka areas or a conference like the TIG and KIG have once a year, but on Sado Island for the people that don't live in Tokyo or Kansai. If you know any members way out in no where Japan, let me know.
I don't remember your sister. I might if I saw her. Takahiro doesn't sound familiar either. I know Barry would know. I need to tell him about this site. I'm still exploring it myself. My dad lives here in Iowa. He lived with me for awhile but now he's in a nursing home as he has demintia and is wheel chair bound and I'm his primary care giver. Suzie passed away in 2002. Barry also lives in Iowa, a couple of hours away from me.
Gordon, I just now joined this site and was looking around to see who I might know. I don't know you, but you might know my dad and my late step-mother and maybe even my brother. My dad is Tom Yamagata and he was married to Suzie and my brother is Barry. I live in Iowa but visited San Jose several times and met many members. You almost look familiar to me.
