November 10

Your inaptness joins hands with my miscommitted allegiances and leaps off the cliff of the lower lip – take that! Meanwhile, ice pioneers flexing their icicles prepare for descent. Mouths warming open. First response from the West: “Try not to land in the Traffic of a Thousand Rounders.” Then: “Close your mouth, just close it.” Who was it that said this: “That country in the East where icicles are both sweet and self-defense.”

Just found your website Sawako! Love it, although I need the cliff notes version of this piece ;-) Looking forward to browsing the rest of your site at my leisure. Hope all is well with you my friend.

Take care
Deborah

Hi, I hate to say this...but which Deborah is this? (Also to note: GIVE A FIG is not so much "my" website, but it's a blog I'm contributing to right now...)

cheers,
Sawako
