Sure, if everything had gone "as originally planned," we would be in Japan いま. But instead, we decided we love our life here in New York City. Admittedly, I still hope to teach abroad, but for now, I cannot imagine ever having to ever really "leave" New York. I'm confident the woman I love feels the same. I'm also confident we made the right decision.
Now, I can dedicate more time to my duties at The New School, continue teaching ESL here in the city, and spend time with my brother, nephew, and friends.
I'm delighted to say I have (one week before record breaking crowds at the City Clerk's Office) married Ena Hashimoto - the woman I love and (as I promised in this video) cannot imagine a tomorrow without.
I love you Ena.
And we love you New York!
