Congratulations.  The mixed style makes it more interesting and to me more relateable.

In that case I hope you made the lid of the tamatebako box unopenable.  It would be a mean trick to have your collector suddenly age by many decades the moment they first open the box.

Thanks, Norm.  It seemed to flow pretty naturally from the story.  I was a bit bothered at first by the non-Asian appearance of the boat, but got use to it after a bit.  Appreciate the encouragement.

Love it, especially the idea for the lid.
