Friar of the Order of Saint Augustine (Augustinians). I joined the Order in 1967. Served in Japan from 1977 until 1995. From 1996 until 2008 I worked in telecom and IT, usually in software development project management. Then in May 2008 I returned to the Order. Was pastor of Our Lady of Good Counsel Parish (Staten Island, NY) from August of 2010 until June of 2016. Then Our Mother of Good Counsel Parish in Bryn Mawr, PA until June of 2021. Currently serving as assistant pastor at St. Mary's in Waterford, NY and St. Augustine's in Troy, NY. You may find random thoughts, photos, poems, essays, etc. from me here from time to time.

I am impressed! Making the syllables come out right in both languages, while maintaining a reasonable level of poetry, is certainly not easy. In translating songs, when I go from Japanese to English I always have notes left over that I need to fill appropriately, and in the other direction I have to decide what to cut, because all the content generally won't fit. Congratulations!
Thank you, Jack! I know exactly what you mean. Sometimes a literary shoehorn is needed.
BTW. You and Cathy have been on my mind a lot lately. I've been meaning to call.
Maybe sometime in the next few days during hours we're both awake.
