Work is still slow but it’s picking up faster.
I think it’s just a question of learning how to work with my new team since this project includes more cooperative work than my last one.
Part of the reason is that the team consists of two people after I’ve joined.
Ward gates placed at the entrance to shrines.
In places where there are many like there are here the gates are sponsored by individuals, groups or companies that would like to pay homage to the god.
They act as wards against evil spirits so they can’t bother the god.
Imagine waking through one of these with a friend and then looking back to see that your friend seems to be acting like a mime.
It might be time to rethink that relationship.
