  1. I must admit it took me while to understand but now I can only say “That’s Pretty Amazing” Such a picturesque haiku : Far beyond the field / one hundred frogs / just living!

    Did you arrange the books yourself or did it happen by accident?

    I just looked up at my bookshelf and I saw these two almost side by side: Believing The Lie And The Mountains Echoed. Flabbergasting!!! maybe we can have a series of posts on this.

    • Yes please let’s! Believing The Lie And The Mountains Echoed!! No, I arranged them myself πŸ™‚ Frogs are a repeated motif in haikai, especially since Basho’s famous haiku, and they are always doing something (hopping into ponds, calling…) so there’s an element of irony in my last line πŸ™‚
