Back before web based forums were a thing I was on a gaming newsgroup where every nickname ended with Dragon. Brings back distant memories of my early internet days.Mine is more basic than it sounds. Mystic, CT (with its peaceful river) is one of my favorite getaway places (I go in the off-season, and by train, of course). And, according to the Chinese horoscope, I was born under the sign of the Dragon (the Chinese Dragon is a good, kind creature--not frightening like its counterpart in western mythology). When I was trying out words and phrases to come up with a name, Mystic River Dragon just sounded right.
