Off to Kamakura

I finally managed to make it happen.  My first blog and having my own blog.  It has taken me a while to really sit down and make this happen. The world is filled with heaps of tools and how-tos, surely it’s not that hard to put something like this together.  Nonetheless, like many things, it is all about commitment and dedication.
