Greg VessarI love music, I love to travel, and I love to write. My blog "A Thousand Miles from Kansas" combines all three. I am a Kansas boy and an educator on sabbatical. I have lived in many places around the globe and I currently live in northern Japan. Journey with me as I combine my loves of music, travel, and the written word as I navigate through life.

Love staring out at the big blue Pacific any time of the year!

Moon Over Kwajalein and thoughts of an old friend inspire Haiku #59.
It has been a very different winter than last year in Northern Japan. Less snow and warmer than usual.
A friend and lifelong resident of the Marshall Islands once told me that the Pacific has no memory. I like that thought and think of it often.
