Why ferrets? And why specifically a ferret with a strobe light?
When I still competed in fencing, my mascot was a minature stuffed ferret that my sister found for me during one of my early tournaments. I have had him ever since, and, though I have not competed recently, I still have a fondness for him and other ferrets. I have no other real explanation for liking ferrets. A few years ago, a good friend drew me a picture of a flying ferret with a strobe light; the blog name more directly comes from that. So, think of this blog as those flashes of light that illuminate my thoughts at any given time.
Yes, I’m aware it is a bit weird. But I like it that way.
