Real Life Level-Up and a Squeaky New Year

A boar-ing Terran year finally reached its peak, along came a squeaky Metal Rodent scuffling its way for another Zodiac cycle…

A very happy Lunar New Year to all of you and us who are celebrating this very prosperous season today!

Wandering Days in Japan, Vol. 3

I’ve delayed this after report of my last Moon’s trip to Hi no Moto Land far long enough…

As years go by, my somewhat intense schedule really does hinder my leisure blogging recently.
