A Rest from Looking at the Moon by 

One of the many things I love about Autumn is the shapes of the clouds in the sky. The other day the entire sky was striped. This is a collage made from three different kinds of washi paper. The accompanying haiku by the itinerant poet Matsuo Basho, reminds me that being able to see the moon (or whatever you have set your gaze upon) clearly and all the time isn’t necessarily the only way to enjoy it— or life.

I am a professional Japanese-to-English translator and an Etegami artist. Etegami is a traditional Japanese folk art that combines thoughtful words with simple images painted on washi paper.

    This is so true – and in summer, how we sigh with relief when the couds come in and we can rest our eyes in the softer light.
