The first day of the new year has come and passed and I've had a great holiday season with more to come. I've lots to say about Christmas, skiing, Kyoto, and New Years in Japan, and I'm sure I'll have more to say in a few days after I've gone to see my old friend Gary in Osaka, but that'll all wait until I'm back home in Sendai. But before I go, I'll leave a memento of my Christmas Eve on the blog. Watch closely and you just might catch me pretending to dance.
