a cup of tea – three men – a thousand stories, and a dragon
We are bards and artisans. We love to write, draw, and paint, read and listen to music – all with a cup of tea near at hand. We love stories and storytelling. We enjoy movies and television shows, comic books, games, anime, and manga. Our joy is in food and travel, in arts and entertainment, in poetry, photography, language and history, in people and the different, breathtaking cultures of the world. Oh, and dragons. We love dragons!
