My Blog Name

Here's an interesting "coincidence." After meeting Peggy face to face for the first time at the SFO airport, I mentioned to her that I had started a blog to record my experiences in China. I explained to her the meaning of my chosen blog name - the story or journey of my life often being characterized as being "in the middle." For example, half Japanese and half American. Having a female body but being raised by my father to think like a man. Trying to maintain tension between competing theological issues.

Peggy then laughed and asked I knew what the name "China" meant. I answered in the negative. She explained that "China" literally means "center country." Wow! Here I am again - a story in the middle...
