Happy Year of the Dragon!

While I was in Japan I saw this smiley dude all over the place – not the gurning loon on the right or the lady taking the pic, I’m talking about the dragon. Isn’t he great? :D

Physically I’m back in London; whether I’ve arrived yet mentally remains an open question. After sleeping on a low bed or futons these last three months, being in my bed at home feels like floating in space – and being outside it kind of feels the same way. But I’m back, all’s well and normal service (or what passes for it with me) will resume shortly.
