Marilynne Robinson, Gilead
I don’t usually presume to know others’ reading interests, despite being a librarian, but I had a hunch that Debbie in Sapporo would love Gilead. It seems she did, at the least for a source of gorgeous language longing to be used in etegami. Here she painted a blue flower with rain drops on it and Robinson’s quotation.
Another wonderful thing about this etegami: when my husband saw it, he thought it was my own work. I do love Debbie’s style!
