I was born in 1933 and left Japan for the US in 1952; my life in Japan was 19 years; this was the start.
In 1957 I got together with my love, Tokiko, who passed away in 1995; we shared our life for 38 years, 19 twice. My teaching career also lasted 38 years; I took my first job in 1963 and retired in 2001. I assumed a male identity until 1971, when I regained my rightful womanhood; I was 38 then.
If I lived until 2033, I will have had 38 years of single life; I will then be 100. Cool.
