About meI am so perverse and standoffish. If only I can avoid putting off those for whom I have a genuine regard.
--Lady Murasaki

About my libraryIt's a mania to buy books. I can't go out without buying a book.

Great! Thank you so very much. I will order it and add it to my (very full!) bookcase.
Thought of you today when I saw this:

Hope you're doing well. I've got ups and downs but am okay.
PS if I'd already left the previous msg some other time, pls forgive the duplication! Just didn't want to leave you out!!
Thank you. Stephane arrives tomorrow night, Lord willing (& the flights cooperate LOL). I'm so afraid. I know that's not the correct attitude but it is how I feel. For years I've pondered why the most repeated phrase in the Bible seems to be "Be strong" and usually coupled with "and of good courage" or "and courageous"... I think I'm getting an inkling of the why behind that exhortation.

Thanks again.
Thank you friend :)
Wondered if you'd seen this one:
Message 11: Prop2gether
Some Prefer Nettles by Junicharo Tanizaki is remarkable—a story of a “modern” Japanese marriage which is in trouble. The “modern” and Western-leaning husband and wife are counterbalanced by her traditional father and his companion. The story is unsettling, the language is beautiful, and I had to keep reminding myself that the book was written in the late 1920s! Highly recommended (oh, and on the 1001 Must Read list, or I would never have found it).
Here's another: Message 30: arubabookwoman --4. Life in the Cul-de-Sac by Senji Kuroi. With a nice review
Deebee @ 75 just reviewed The Woman in the Dunes by Kobo Abe -- definitely not my thing (symbolism and I aren't friends), but I remembered you, again.

If I'm littering your page, tell me and I'll just think of you next time, instead of think and comment :)
thought of you again when reading a 75er thread --
Message 19: avatiakh

7) Moribito: Guardian of the Spirit by Nahoko Uehashi is a children's fantasy set in medieval Japan. Overall I wasn't too taken with the book and I did feel the translation jarred in a couple of places. Balsa, a young woman, is a trained warrior, and is given the task of guarding a boy, Chagum, the second prince after saving him from drowning. Chagum has been possessed with a spirit egg that must be safeguarded or the land will suffer from a severe drought. Quite an adventure with lots of fighting against warriors and a monstrous mythical beast, but not enough depth to really be convincing. This book has been very popular in Japan and Balsa's adventures have been adapted for a TV series. I think it would make an exciting graphic novel. I prefer Carole Wilkinson's Dragonkeeper series which is set in old China.
Super! Thx for letting me know. I even popped over to your blog 'cause I was afraid you had disappeared. Your library has books I really want to read (ancient world). And while that is unlikely given access problems, they make some excellent springboards or even just dream material LOL
okay -- didnt see the first time around that she didn't like the book and thought the translation was rough

Jetlag... sorry

Are you going to do a thread on the 2009 75 book group? Hope so!
>I love your spotted cat! Ok, well, really, I love all cats... but yours are especially nice. I have a black shorthair and a long-haired calico myself. How neat to live in Romania! Do you like it there?

Thanks -- Gabriel is basking in your compliments! I really wanted a dog... LOL

Romania is a land of contrasts. It is very beautiful, the food is wonderful, the people are friendly, but it is so poor. And full of rich people. The differences between the two are really appalling. One reason we accepted this assignment was to help the economy with our presence. One does what one can. You'll find photos of some of what we've seen on my multiply site, if you care to take a peek: http://suslyn.multiply.com

Thx for the lovely comments. :)
I'm loving your homepage and have bookmarked it for further exploration! You don't exactly skim the surface of ife, do you? That's pretty cool -- is it exhausting as well? I get tired just thinking about it!

I've only heard wonderful things about Vancouver and hope to visit some day. I went to a Filipino church in Dallas and most of the members and pastor as well had lived in Vancouver.

Hope you have a great day and great rest of your weekend.

Susan
Hi Enheduanna, good to connect with you here. I know Vancouver is near Portland but I used to live in Washington myself (Seattle). Graduated there from the University of Washington.

How can you not like living near Powell's?
