spring thunder
I promise not to tell
her mother
(This appeared in the Shiki Kukai, June 2008, where it took second place in the free format category. The assigned topic was "secret," with the recommendation that the content of the secret not be identified.)
I'll be on a break until the middle of the month. Stay well, my friends.

to answer your inquiry on my blog: i'm not at all a movie buff and haven't been to the movies in years so i'm hardly the one to ask :)

slovenian film production is a small one, perhaps 6 or 7 a year. i don't know what they'll be showing, more recent stuff or older ones. i can say, though, that Rooster's breakfast (direct translation from slovene; i'm not sure under which title they show it internationally) has received very good publicity and has been a bestseller recently
