About Me

From the Editor-In-Chief:

I’m José. I started Life: Clear Yet Hazy at the very end of 2008 as a way to write about things I liked and to keep my family and friends informed about all the big changes in life as I went off to grad school. Since then, the blog has contracted, grown, and evolved as life has sent some new lessons my way, some with clear meaning and some hazy.

The blog allowed me to find like-minded bloggers to learn from and who encouraged me in my endeavors. I’ve written posts on being multilingual, fighting stink bugs in my first apartment, getting lost, and finding my way again. Since, 2008 the blog has seen me through grad school, my marriage to Christine, underemployment, career changes, and now into the new adventure of parenthood.

Thank you for reading. I hope you find something that brings a little clarity to your journey.

—José Feliciano

José is an arts, culture, & heritage professional, educator, and researcher who creates, develops, and supports cultural and diversity-based positive change in the communities he serves. 

He is a Connecticut native with a passion for dancing, travel, and curling up with a great book.

    Dear Jose:
    Thanks a lot for reading my articles and writing about them. It makes me very happy that the words of the people I interview get a wider audience. Thank you so much! Grazias, merci and arigatou gozaimasu.
    I’m so impressed by your wide interests and serious studies, including
    languages, history and dancing! Hope you are learning a lot and that one day you visit Japan again.
    I’m on Twitter–judittokyo, please join if you’re on. I searched your name but can not find you there.
    Thanks again and ganbatte kudasai!

      Dear Ms. Kawaguchi,

      Thank you for the compliments and good wishes in your comment. Your visit to the blog is a compliment in and of itself. I am not yet on twitter, but when I do get an account eventually you can be sure that I will add you.
      I have been learning much in my program and hope to visit Japan again. In the meantime, I will keep working hard, updating this blog, and reading your blog and newspaper column.
      Thanks again for visiting and commenting.

    Love the explanation about your blog title – and it’s so true!!! Your life sounds very interesting and I’m anxious to keep up with your blog to read about it! Do you mind if I add you to my blogroll?
    Also a question — how did you add the “Follow Me on Twitter” button? I haven’t been able to find good instructions in WordPress’s help section.
    Have a super weekend Jose!

      Thanks again for reading.
      You can set up a twitter widget under appearances in your admin dashboard area. Also you can have the posts publish on twitter for you by going to “My Blogs” under your dashboard button and then checking Twitter under the publicize option.
      Finally, I’d be delighted to be on your blogroll and will add you to mine since it’ll further remind me to follow your blog.
