Marie has translated the words so that there is an echo. I read things twice and hear a refrain.
Marie closes the book with the 'Epigue', of course, circling back to remind me that it is,'a lesson in phy,' 'phy' which inevitably makes me feel inadequate, having responded initially to the sound, the feel and the story, forgetting the science.
And if that weren't enough, and it really was enough and more, Marie has enclosed other things I've loved from the MinXus Lynxus blog: http://minxuslynxus2.wordpress.com I am absolutely delighted to have these treasures in my collection!
And finally the packaging, the envelope, from a distant place Marie's writing and the unfamiliar, yet familiar japanese address and the brush strokes, asemic heaven.
