I began keeping a journal in high school, a requirement for my sophomore English class. I wrote the required entries, then wrote more, then wrote as a junior and senior, and so on. Only in graduate school, when a well-meaning friend suggested I stop dwelling on the morbid past, did I stop my daily writing and toss my journals away. I have regretted it ever since.
This blog is my literary journal . . . poems–mine and others, my ideas, my stories, my pictures, art and photos. It is a collection for remembering and reliving joys and sorrows, beauty and ugliness, life and death . . . everything . These are my memories, my poem-coded secrets, the glimpses of me.
“shiteki na usagi” means poetic rabbit or personal/private rabbit . . . depending on the kanji used. I love both, so I used romaji in the title.
My newest appearance is as prompt writer for We Write Poems.
