This is an adorable bat that I espied hiding in the corner of a door on the streets of Hanoi.

Bats are a sign of good fortune, so you can see them decorating many nooks and crannies of Asian architecture and furniture! I’ve seen them on window shutters and roof tiles at the You Garden in Shanghai, and even as a door pull at the Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden in Vancouver.

I’m posting my door inspirations from around the world to celebrate the release of The Guardians of Zoone on February 25!

There is a bat in The Secret of Zoone, by the way. It’s Gresswydian breed, and it breathes fire.
