breezy: the divine wind

kamikaze |ˌkämiˈkäzē | ORIGIN Japanese, from kami ‘divinity’ + kaze
‘wind’, originally referring to the gale that, in Japanese tradition, destroyed the fleet of invading Mongols in 1281. I love to read Japanese history, especially the Sengoku jidai or "Warring States" period. The picture here is the cover for cigar-tin story #30, and I think she looks very Japanese indeed.

Cigar-tin stories #31 and #32. I think I'm getting the hang of this now.

A portrait of me, by my niece Stella ... tell me if I'm wrong, but do my eyes look slightly indecent?
