My name is Jordan. I'm just an Afro-American raised in a Scottish household who grew up facinated by Japanese culture... I'm a single dad, a store manager, a hiker, a writer of bad haikus, a book and film glutton and a half decent cook. This blog is a way to remind myself that life is about more than the ten hours a day I spend serving the public. As Charlotte Bronte once said, "Happiness unshared can scarcely be called happiness". Or if you prefer, from Snoop Dog, "It ain't no fu-u-un if the homies can't ha-ave none". No photos are mine unless stated.
