Mukashi mukashi…

昔々 or むかしむかし essentially means “Once upon a time…” in Japanese literature. I’ve been reading fairy tales recently, since my Japanese is perhaps about the level of a very small child. This is the opening to おやゆびひめ or Thumbelina, and I thought it was a good fit for this shot.

I came up with this picture for this month’s Japan Blog Matsuri–the theme is I Kanji, so I thought a self-portrait might work, though it’s not really the usual style of entries. It’s also my shot for this week’s Show Me Japan, which featured my shot from last week’s Prefectural Tournament! How cool is that?

    Did you write on your arm yourself? You didn’t get help from anyone? That takes some talent! Great shot.
