BEGIN Japanology – Japanese Stationery 2

Even though I won’t be writing long blog posts I might still find the time to post links or write short blog posts.

I’ll start with some youtube videos. Watching it you might think it is an old recording (style, background music, quality), but it is a new episode (April 2013) from a series by NHK’s international broadcasting service.

You can find more information about the show at NHK World.


Intermezzo 6

This is just a quick post to let you know that (most likely) you won’t see any long blog posts on Bleistift in the next four weeks or so.

My desk this morning.

My desk this morning.

I’m currently very busy at work and when that calms down I’ll be busy with other things …so it might be June before I get round to writing the blog posts I’ve currently got in mind.
