Yah! It's Friday. Just a quick post to say that I revised the Japanese pattern help PDF file so you might want to give it another look because its now a much more comprehensive list.

And here's a short story by Haruki Murakami that has nothing to do with St. Patricks Day, but it's so lovely that I had to share it. Click on the text to turn the page.
