Good thing I opened this morning’s email! The vendor for The Same Moon goods & gifts is offering 50 percent off all apparel today — Nov. 16, 2021 — only! Might make a fun holiday gift … T-shirts, sweatshirts, tank tops, onesies …
(NOTE: Please order a size up. I usually wear a medium in T-shirts but definitely need a large in this model.)
The Japanese kanji on the shirt I’m wearing in the photo (and as I write) reads “onaji tsuki” — which means, “The Same Moon.” (Find the collection here.)
The other design, based on the cover of my memoir, The Same Moon, includes kanji that reads “futatsu no sekai ni, onaji tsuki” — “two worlds but the same moon.” (Find the collection here.)
I love both of these designs, because they remind me that we all look up at the same moon, no matter where we are or what we believe. I see them as symbols of unity.
(I also love them, because they were created by my friend Andria Villanueva!)
#SameMoonFriends — this Friday
Speaking of unity … this Friday, Nov. 19, brings us the full moon. I’ll be thinking of my #SameMoonFriends particularly that day and posting a special greeting on social media. I invite you to join me in greeting your faraway friends and loved ones!

More goods & gifts promos
By the way, my goods & gifts vendor has more promotional offers ahead. Here are the ones coming up over the next few days:
- Nov. 17: 25 percent off home decor — coffee mugs and throw pillows
- Nov. 18: 25 percent off tote bags (I love mine), zip pouches and yoga mats
- Nov. 19: 25 percent off phone cases
- Nov. 20-21: free ground shipping off U.S. orders
I wouldn’t be talking about these Same Moon ideas if it weren’t for my memoir, which tells of how I ran far, far away — to rural Japan — to find my way home. If you are in the Fargo-Moorhead area, you will be able to find signed copies of The Same Moon (Camphor Press, 2020) at Zandbroz Variety within the next day or two. Otherwise, it is available at the usual online retailers — listed on my Same Moon page.
Thank you so much for your interest and support!
