A Message from the King

As a way to be active on my blog, I thought I had started a New Year’s tradition of learning a newIt began in 2018 when my New Year’s resolution was to improve my chess game. In 2019, I tried my hand at poker. For 2020 though, I could not decide on a new game, chess has remained an interest, and I’ve never been much for traditions. So, the least I can do is try to build a habit of writing a New Year’s post. And, maybe that will lead to more than one post during the year!
game each year and using that to write a New Year’s post.

Chess is still on my mind, but for a different reason today.
Earlier this month, I unearthed a chess set from storage that my family had gotten while we briefly lived in Austria for my dad’s work. It was nice to see it again after being closed up in a closet for so long.

Cheers to Good Moves in 2018

This is my new travel chess set. Obviously, a travel chess set is meant to travel, but my New Year's resolutions do not include globe trotting. The plan is, however, that this set will be with me wherever I go, figuratively if not literally.
