I was asked to participate in the3six5.com, a blog-a-day, person-by-person account of the whole year. My post is up today! Mine’s on writing and observation – there’s a snippet below.
If you have the chance, please check out the whole post (link below), and comment/tweet/forward if you like it! (This project is getting a lot of mentions in the social media/creative realms… very exciting!)

Yes, that’s Mandarin Chinese, and yes, we’re that kind of parents.
