The places in this story don’t matter but the people do.
Because people make life, not places, not possessions, not things.
There is no way you can avoid the highs and lows of life but you will see that ‘Real Life’ needs those lows to make the highs that much higher.
It’s all about what you say and do and not what you think or propose to do.
Doing changes mundane and meaningless to a reality that is exciting and important.
You have to remember that it is down to you only and therefore you cannot blame anyone else for the life that you lead.

“Jack, why are you going to live in Japan?”
This was a question said with an incredulous voice and reinforced by a quizzical look as if Japan was at the end of the world.
“Because, I can,” and I left it at that.
