more etegami inspiration from books

Today (2nd Monday of January) is Coming-of-Age Day in Japan. My own coming-of-age was 40 years ago. I'm celebrating it by reading As Chimney Sweepers Come to Dust, the latest volume in the Flavia de Luce novels (by Alan Bradley), because I feel more of a bond with 12-year-old Flavia than I do with this year's 20-year-olds. I have a notebook full of Flavia quotes waiting to be clothed in etegami. But they're not for the squeamish. :)

  1. Hello Debbie, It's thanks to Thérèse who sent me one of your etegamis - the one about the common cormorant (or shag) - that I'm here today to tell you that this etegami ant is quite as lovely as the one I received. (Can you call the body upstears lovely?) When - even though I think more like if - I stop working one day, I'll be back to have a better look at your work. That will be the day I start blogging again, and maybe writing one more crazy story like the one about my common cormorant - that nobody would call common, not even Thérèse who is responsible for me being here today. (Your etegami can be seen on my blog - I made an exception for it.)
