I woke up like it was Christmas morning this morning -- payday, and I knew the first thing I would do (after coffee, of course) would be to obtain this gorgeous dragon. Yes, does it feel a little like cheating to buy something...a tad. But, oh I think it's beautiful. It reminds me of Hayao Miyazaki films, and of Haku, the river spirit especially. No matter your background or age, watch Spirited Away and just...go. Cross the threshold, go through the door, enter the portal, and be a protected, cherished, and loved little person again.
