i recently read this article about okinawan mothering, and it got me thinking about my time in okinawa. my dad was in the navy when i was growing up and was stationed on okinawa when i was in 7th-9th grade. we spent 3 wonderful years there and i can't say enough about how friggin awesome the experience was!
i just found this series of videos about the island. i especially like the video below because i have STRONG memories of the many times we got to go to the tug-o-war! it was really amazing!
