What a fine day to greet clouds, is it not? Well, allow me to make it more interesting. A few months ago, the hydra decided on a dragon poster to celebrate the end of our first season of The Mythsterhood of Travelling Tales podcast. We’re not yet there, but that’s not going to stop us from making it a month-or-so celebration. The poster was recently completed and I, for one, cannot wait to share it with all our Mythsters!
