Sachiko Featured At Planet Japan!

Given my ethnicity, I’m sure there must be a few Japanophiles amongst my readership. And even if you aren’t one, it’s hard not to find a lot of the weird and wonderful things that go on there interesting to say the least! Hence the Planet Japan Podcast, which has a feature on your’s truly in their latest episode (my segment starts at 18:37). I suspect their regular “Religion Corner” segment would be of interest to my readers as well. In the present episode, co-host Doug has a rather interesting(!) hypothesis as to why John McCain lost the US election too. He has also written several articles for Blogcritics magazine, including some very topical Reflections on God and Santa (I’ve sometimes wondered about the idea he puts forward here as well!).

BTW, sorry for the less substantial posts recently, but with all the doom and gloom around at the moment, I feel I would like to write about less weighty issues for now. But rest assured I will be returning to my favorite topics of religion and politics (and the environment as well) next month!

Sachiko,

Thanks for the nice words. You’ve got a new fan here in Okayama, and like I said on the show…you’re my Dream Girl!

Doug, I enjoyed reading your reflections on God and Santa. I’m glad you hold true to the adage “live and let live”. The magic we embrace and/or endure is a stage in humanity’s evolutionary development.

Sachiko, I am a lover of Japan – more precisely, a lover of the awesome beauty that is the best of Japanese culture. Please do not apologize for your less than substantial posts. Your reason for them is well taken. Also, tis the season to be merry. Give us more of your merriment!

Loverboy
