Those of you not in the Philippines may have heard on the news that the country was hit by a pretty crazy typhoon last Saturday. We’re used to typhoons over here, but this one turned out much worse than anyone was expecting. My family and I were lucky and weathered it just fine. But many people right in our city lost most of their belongings, their homes, or even their lives; and other cities and regions were hit much worse. I know things are bad all over, and several other countries were hit with terrible natural disasters recently; but if you’re sleeping someplace dry and safe tonight, please spare a moment to think of those who can’t. If you want to find out more or are interested in helping out, there are some photos, videos and links collected here and here.
Okay, that’s all. We now return you to your irregularly scheduled cheesy fairy tale comic. There are three more pages in this Interlude, and Chapter 5 is going to be another monster-sized one like Chapter 3.
