So a lot has been going on in my life, and finding time and inspiration for creating has had to take a backseat to that. I've been meaning to do more, but as is so typically me that doesn't often work out. A big part of that was buying a house earlier in the year. I guess it was something that kept me very busy, but perhaps somewhat of an excuse. After what I went through with the last house I owned, I honestly thought I'd never repeat this process again and yet here we are as my wife and I are now co-owners of a modest house.

A lot is changing in my life, and I can only expect those changes to continue. I hate being vague about it, but for now that is about all I can say. Truth is I do not know what all will change exactly or in what ways, so that is the best I can do for now. When I am ready, I will be glad to share it here.

I'm a couple days away from my trip back to Japan. My brother-in-law is moving, so we're helping with that, but hopefully I'll have some fun things I can share regarding the trip in general.
