What It Means to be Green
I remember when I lived on Hokkaido, the northern island of Japan. You could count the number of native English speakers in Hakodate on one hand, and I seldom had the opportunity to iterface with them. In my heart, I was truly lonely, although I seldom admitted it to myself and never aloud. My weekly touch of "home" was the broadcast of Miss Piggy, Kermit and friends on NHK television. I cried when I heard Kermit sing "What it Means to be Green." I knew just how he felt.
