Born in Stockholm (Sweden), now live in Sapporo (Japan). Hold a Ph.D. in computer science and work with computers during the days, perform magic in a bar during the nights (and weekends, for kids). Also used to teach historical fencing back in Sweden.
Today it was snowing. Not as much as when it snows "a lot by Sapporo standards", but still enough to block out the view from my balcony. These two photos are taken in roughly the same direction (the temple can be seen in both) but in one you can see much farther.
