Returning from Japan after 10 yrs. I export California Agriculture to Japan. More particular boutique / micro wine producers of Northern California. During our Economic downturn it was my responsibility to erect a trading platform to get our wineries into international market to offset market stagnation domestically.
The saying “business is not personal”??? hmm..no no…it’s personal, very personal.
Lived in Northern Thailand N.E. of Chiang Mai toward the Laos border on an Econ Development project for 8 months. Seeing the distinct cultures the Thai, Laos, Cambodian, Hmong and Mienh was amazing. I would deff say it's they that hold the temple within. They seem focused on a person’s center / core who you are as a person. With that very natural, very solid. Happy to be who they naturally are and seem to be of a higher core or deeper more transcendent spiritual center.
I'm Bi-racial Black & white 4th generation on both sides. I’m a patriot to the core! Grrr!! Lol
Points of enjoyment are yoga twice a week, sitting / meditating a lot more (interesting how that’s gaining a stronger gravity naturally), reading ( Econ, Business Dev, management, global issues & trends. I can’t read bla bla stories. Bio’s yes but it’s got to be practical). Any and all water activities diving, kayaking, polo with old team members. Gym 3 days a week, and playing ice hockey once a week up at Roseville.
I’m not interested in meeting the typical woman from Sacramento. Lol Sacramento seems to breed a culture of ultra-conservativism. Someone mentioned, “Sac was voted as the most diverse city”.
Hmmm yes, groups may be present but they don’t blend nor know how to bond together. People here seem skeptical, overly critical and maintain a racist core under ideals of “taking their life serious” and they’re worth it. Hmmm, you can take life serious and still have balance in humanity. You are a member of the globe after all. Not unless you see yourself only in a local capacity, which points to my discussion. lol
Even the Yoga communities here seem off. They speak of the love of community but you can tell that word is not for all communities. It’s reserved for their sub-community.
And I have swastikas and BYU professors in my family. But then again as an Econ guy, I’d say that is a reflection of a region with a lack of industries. People feel the need to cling to prosper vs being natural.
With that, I’m looking for a woman that is a globalist in posture and being. I’m not going to risk my kid being trapped in some micro existence because mom has some head trip belief. Did you know that Miss Japan 2016 is black and Japanese? The most sought after executives in Japan now are Black and Japanese? Amazing…lol, Even the new only true authentic Japanese cuisine Izakaya Takumi located right here in Sac on J & 8th the same sushi chef that created all of Mikuni’s sushi dishes 15 years ago now opened Takumi…yes….black and Japanese. lol
Diversity and balance are a necessity. Abroad the guys I hang with were Canadian, Aussies, Turkish, a few Brits here and there, Kiwi's (N. Zealanders), German and Saudi's. Circles always need to be balanced.
All I can say is that time and time again life has proven to me that we all share much more common ground than different ground. Having beers at a table with guys that couldn't be more different to you in every way at first glance. But taking the time to discover those hidden treasures of common ground that bind you as brother. Priceless…
Just a touch so you know I'm still very much so in a Japanese posture.
If you’re internationally minded enjoy sharing insights not a herd follower which is the norm here in Sac.
I hope to hear from you.
