– Aoi

My shirt is aqua, turquoise, sea blue. Walking home from the park, a little one cries out “Aoi, aoi.”  Her parents agree that my top is very blue, and then apologise for the girl’s enthusiasm. The apology is just the Japanese way. As a noticeable foreigner, it’s nice to be singled out for colour of a different kind.

    Reminds me of Radiolab’s podcast about colour. She was doing something that Homer couldn’t.

      Hmm, now I am intrigued and will have to research. I owe you an email. I haven’t forgotten! Hope you’re well.
