    Greetings. I read your story today on Yuka Sekiguchi WRT demenita taking the headlines (Dementia is pushing cancer out of the medical spotlight) and discovered something intriguing: her assessment of dementia being a form of liberation blew me away because I thought I was the only one with that crazy idea. You see, I am dying of Lewy Body Dementia which is like a mix of AD and Parkinsons. Point is, I get first-hand tastes of what dementia is like and I saw this same possibility earlier in my progression (http://livingwithlewybodies.blogspot.com/2018/05/next-stop-undiscovered-country.html). I present this simply to demonstrate my sincerity when I ask if you had any way to contact Yuka Sekiguchi because I could love to compare notes. She is probably too important to waste time with this, I get that but I have nothing to lose by asking. Cheers on a fine story that pulled me right in! I apologise for contacting you in this manner; I have exhausted my own efforts to locate her….

    Hi Philip,

    Miss you in the Japan Times. When are you coming back?

      If you’re talking specifically about Media Mix, the Japan Times’ management decided they didn’t want it any more.

      • David Anderson says:

        That is a shame. I always looked forward “reading you” in the Saturday edition and have been enjoying your writing since you used to have the column about house hunting.

        Well, we still cover media on this site and at Number 1 Shimbun, and still have the housing blog (catforehead.com), which we’re trying to turn into a book. So I hope you keep reading.
