I’ve collected all the newsletters now but they’re still unpublished drafts. When I sent them by email twelve years ago, I numbered them in the subject line. Japan newsletter #1 and so on.
There are fifteen newsletters in all, but they end with #13. I wrote a very short one that I decided to cleverly label #4½ – thank you, past me. It also turns out that two newsletters are labeled #5. It’s fun trying to reconstruct the sequence today and figuring out what goes where!
