Hello everyone and welcome to my page. My name is Hank Irwin, but I am also known by one of my pen names, BushinoJi (pron; bush-e-no-jee). It is a copy-written pen name and one that holds significant value to me personally. I have been a martial arts student for over 40 years now. It is a nick name I have had for a very long time. In Japanese it translates to "Warrior of the Temple/The Temple Warrior." Figured I might as well explain that now seeing as how it's the signature header of the site. You can access my bio-info from one of the tabs in the menu bar. This site is devoted to my musings, writings, artwork and personal interests. It will also be a base of operation for all my literary endeavors. I have many plans for the future, one of them being a .com of my own. But for now, I think this site will accommodate me for the time being quite well. ~ This is just a test run for now but I will be updating the site as I go along. I apologize in advance for any delays in posting or updating, as my schedule may only permit me to spend so much time here. I will do my best to keep up with everyone as best as I can. So, sit back and enjoy the music if you like. I've also put a music player, a host of illustrations of artists I like that profoundly influenced me, and...that I hope will exhibit my tastes in art, music, literary preferences and educational interests. It's not all my influences, just a small handful. But nevertheless. Well, I hope you enjoy your time here. If there is anything I can do to make your visit here more comfortable, please let me know. And with that, once again, welcome...and thank you all for being a part of "The Tales of BushinoJi."
