It must be mid-day! The sun is shining brightly through the window. My suitcases still sit unpacked. I have no idea where I am and my body has no idea what time it is. I'm famished. I must have slept right through breakfast and lunch. I trip down the hallway and stop short of falling down the stairs.
Now I remember. I'm in Japan, someplace called Kanto Mura Family Housing Annex. I can't even pronounce it yet. Just the day before, I was in California and the day before that back home in Illinois. I stop for a moment and contemplate the word "home". Wherever I am now, this is "home" and I better get use to it. I finally find a clock. It says 4:00. Can it possibly be that late in the day? I look outside. The sun is just rising in the east. That is the east isn't it? It's four o'clock in the morning!
