Buddha lives in Vegas, go figure

I don’t know what happened to my resolve, but writing blog posts died out somewhere on the bus ride through painful traffic up to the Cambridge/Boston area… hopefully at some point I’ll sit down and get some memories written down before they disappear, but in the meantime, just wanted to share this fun little picture [...]
