A Brief Aside About the Current Situation

This has been a tough week.

I’ve been struggling to figure out what to write about today. I kicked around a few ideas; there’s always more tabletop stuff to discuss, and I’ve been meaning to do a post about gunpla for a while, too. But ultimately, it doesn’t feel like the right time for any of that. This blog is supposed to be a celebration of things I love, a way for me to discuss fun topics–but nothing feels particularly fun right now.

So, I’m not going to do my usual post today. Instead I’m going to encourage readers to donate to causes that support the Black Lives Matter movement and fight to end systemic racism.
