hey Johanna,
this comment has nothing with your recent blog entry but more about world literature, what was that thing you mentioned about code of silence in Japan? what did you call that? thanks!

Hey Mike,

I didn't call it anything specific, but mentioned how unlike the west, historically the Japanese rely on a shared communication of understanding without words. Speaking too much is associated with immaturity, empty-headedness and women. In fact, the kanji symbol for "women" is the same as "noise." Silence is believed to unify, whereas words separate.

Hope that helps!
