Blind Willow, Sleeping Woman by Haruki Murakami
Blind Willow, Sleeping Woman

bobbiemcgarey, September 6, 2006

A willow tree's branches drape down to the ground forming a natural umbrella to hide those under its branches. One could sleep there unobserved neither seeing the world nor being seen. It sounds as well like a perfect place to sit and read and be quiet with a very chaotic world swirling around.
Evocative title for a book of short stories and I want to know what's behind the 'veil'.
