My life as "Coco Masuda"
Hello. My name is Coco Masuda. After graduating from high school in Tokyo, I was sent to Vermont by my father to study English in 1979. But the following year, I moved to New York City, the only place in the US that I thought I could be happy. Though I lived in Boston for a year and had a vacation home in Hawaii, I called New York City my home for most of my adult life.
On this site, I write a blog for the Japanese audience about:
• information about New York City
• information about Upstate NY
• my life as a female, senior business owner, and a creative
• my life as a single mother of an adopted college-age daughter
• love and dating scene as a woman over 60
• tips about learning and improving English
• everything else that happens in my life
The blog's title was coined by a dear friend, who thinks that my life is very unique. Well, I don't know about that, but I do know I am a sharer. I am sorry that you can't read my blog in English, but I hope you will follow me at:
