Back from a long weekend in the Catskills (means "cat's creek," in Dutch, and suggests the presence of Bobcats and other felines, but now signifies numerous mountainous resorts north of the city)--and back in action, speaking tomorrow at Keio Academy New York.
On Friday I fly to Portland to appear at the SubVersion Anime Festival, then head to Seattle for meetings and friends.
Lots of activity on new and ongoing projects, including Anime Masters & Masterpieces and some just cinched West Coast bookings. More on that later.

Finally realized that trekking between Tokyo and New York is not exactly a recipe for rest. But as Milton writes in Comus: 'what hath night to do with sleep?'
