There's little that makes you feel so invisible on LJ as to write a heartfelt post and get no comments. :P

Guilty as charged.

I'm glad you're getting back to something you loved.

Aw. I really didn't mean to make people guilty, just to kvetch a little. But I do appreciate that a bunch of people have commented, as a result. I feel much less invisible now.

I'm glad you're getting back to something you loved.

Thank you! I hope to stick with it and also learn the language. At least some basics. Brian and I hope to take Rosie to China someday. And I would like to share it with Rosie.

There's a Chinese folktale about a child who is given a magic paintbrush, and when she paints things, they become real on the finishing stroke. There was a gorgeously illustrated version of that story that I would like to find and give to Rosie. I loved it when I was a child. There are many versions of the story, but so far I have not found one with the beautiful illustrations I remember. It might have been in a Cricket magazine. It would be a good introduction for any child about oriental art.
