Today’s doodle was inspired by Zendictive’s and Fergiemoto’s posts about Etegami – a Japanese word meaning the combination of pictures and meaningful words.

This is basically what I’ve been trying to do from the beginning with this blog, but the idea of Etegami helped me focus on what the leaf might have to say, rather than trying to impose my own words and feelings onto the leaf. For the record, I’m not as stiff and wrinkled as the leaf I drew this morning, but I am still here, so that’s at least one thing we have in common.
