etegami biography

6:00 AM. June 6, 2014

Husband: I'll be hiking the Tengu-dake and Anadaki Falls area today. That's where I ran into the bear last year. (excited, hopeful) Of course, that was in May.... (wistful, doubtful).

Me: Well, if you get eaten by a bear it would make an interesting ending to your biography.

Husband: You planning to write my biography?

Me: Well, an etegami biography. Maybe.

Husband: If my life inspires you to make etegami, then it will all have been worth it. (there's a gleam in his eye. humor? sarcasm?)

As soon as he walked out the door, I grabbed a piece of cardboard and some watercolor pencils, and drew an etegami. I just can't resist a challenge....

  3. Lovely humour. I bet your husband gave you a long bear hug for this one.

  4. Love it! Starting any tiny phrase or piece of poetry with 'and' gives so many possibilities and imaginative avenues to glimpse. Fab.
