 The Y's of Life

Y’s of Life is a fascinating guided journey through your decision making process and cause and effect that will help you to think about your decisions and how your actions or inaction impacts and influences your life as well as the lives of others.
Y’s of Life will help you realize that your very existence puts you in an integral role that impacts innumerable people and, in-turn, they you; there is no such thing as an insignificant life.

A decision delayed even one second is not the same decision.
-- Robert T. Wood --

The forks in the road (Y’s) that we encounter through life sometimes causes us to think “Why me,” when our decisions turn out to be less than favorable.  Prepare yourself for a thought-provoking, mind boggling excursion... a journey through your past and how you got to where you are... the decisions that you made, why you made them; the influences and consequences.  We are all a composite of past experience... that is what makes us who we are today, and today’s experiences and decisions put us where we will be tomorrow.
Seemingly unrelated, random events throughout life are so complex and intertwined that it is impossible to comprehend how one set of circumstances may have influenced another.  The numerous and seemingly insignificant decisions we make during the course of every waking hour can, and in many cases do, have a major impact on us for the rest of our life.

 Object Marking in Japanese

Object Marking in Japanese, A Self-study Programmed Lesson focuses on teaching about the grammatical use of o (wo) versus ga as postpositions for direct objects in Japanese sentence structure.
A unique attribute of the lesson is a formula for explaining the relationship between Japanese verb structure and postpositions.  A theory developed by the author more than 30 years ago and has refined.  It is an interesting and revolutionary way of looking at sentence structure and how, by evaluating the verb structure, one can determine the proper postposition for use with a direct object in a Japanese sentence.
