I blush to admit I've been committing Blogspot again. My new posting is up at Beyond the Veil. Today's entry is seasonally appropriate--if you happen to live in Washington, DC. April 12 is the high point of our annual Cherry Blossom Festival. In honor of the occasion, Greg and I attended the geisha dance program sponsored by the Japanese Information and Culture Center--the same folks who feed our yen for live action anime movies. (Hey, it's a totally guilty pleasure. Why shouldn't it come with a bad pun attached?) The free geisha dance program, which anyone who's ever been to Japan can tell you is a very, very big deal. Man, I love living in DC!
