My mother passes away in the following year. I fell into deep sorrow because Tanka examples yahoo dating was not able to share my feeling with anyone else - most of my relatives were deceased and I was a only child in the family. Again, it was tanka which supported me in those days. While I write tanka, I felt being relieved of my worries.

In those days, there was no Japanese person doing this kind of activity overseas, therefore, everything was try and error. I was able to make myself understood in English at that time, however, I faced a lot of difficulties because
Tanka examples yahoo dating the language barrier. American English, British English, and unique pronunciation or phrases in different areas, and so on.
