Taking Tokyo has seen better days.
I’m currently at home recovering from a head injury, in America.
If you’ve been following the blog here at Taking Tokyo, you’ll know that as of my last post, I was scheduled to leave for Tokyo, Japan via airplane on March 3rd.
Well… that didn’t really happen.
The last thing I remember before blacking out was putting my laptop in a tray in airport security. According to the others present, I went into the full-body scanner and whapped my head on the scanner, then on the floor before becoming unresponsive. I was rushed to the hospital in an ambulance.
I woke up several hours later, very confused. All I knew of what happened really came from my mom, who got right up out of bed to come to the hospital, and the folks at the hospital. I Skyped my roommate to tell her in what little Japanese I could gather to not pick me up at the train station.
“I… uh… I broke my head.”
“I, um… I took it and went like, well, I’m in the hospital now, so…”
“Oh, like ‘baaaang?’”
“Yeah, like that.”
… Well, the conversation went like that for a myriad of reasons.
Anyway, everyone urged me not to stress over business, and frankly I didn’t want to stress over business either. So it was decided then and there: My recovery came before Taking Tokyo.
I scrabbled some newsletters together over the coming weeks to alert my subscribers to my condition, keeping them updated, but blog posts were always secondary to my recovery.
Even now, this is all I’m really capable of.
My apologies belong to you, my readers. While I am still healing, this is all I can do for you.
I hope for your understanding.
