My essay in A Cup of Culture and a Pinch of Crisis: Tales from a Small Planet: The Food Edition

Takashi and C-chan Arai on the farm.
I am so very pleased to announce that my essay, "Growing Home in Tokyo", is included in the latest collection of essays from Tales from a Small Planet - A Cup of Culture and a Pinch of Crisis. I wrote, of course, about how I landed on an organic farm in Tokyo and how my years there shaped my experience here. Japan is my second home in great part because of the hours and days spent working side by side with the Arai family. They and their farm are more dear to me than a few paragraphs can express, and that's not even counting all those awesome recipes I learned.

So, please consider buying it or asking your library to buy it. I might mention, too, that it makes a great gift.
