A bit lighter today, in content and number of links - I was busy finishing up something that took me away from regular internet into the depths of medieval East Asia. Unless you know a bit of classical Chinese ànd you're dying to know where "independent scholars" (I now am one of those!) find their resources without daily access to a research library, my browsing history the past will put you to sleep. So here are a couple of more entertaining links!

1. Drawings by Shiro

What happens when your seven-year-old asks for their own YouTube channel or Instagram page, but you're a responsible parent? This conversation:

Of course building them their own website is the right answer! And Shiro's got some really cool drawings, please check them out! Shiro's very talented and has a great imagination, and knows a thing or two about kaiju. What more do you want from a budding artist?

2. Stacking rocks

And other fun distractions on the Neal Fun website. Best to set a timer before you dive in here, some really fun and entertaining exploration-based games available here. Can you stack these rocks in a stable position? Have a go!

Sunset on the beach, stacking some virtual rocks on the Neal Fun website... Really fun!
