el sol

A friend recently has contacted me after a long time. The last time we saw and talked to each other was around 1999. That was when she got married–a great party, one of a kind. After that she went to Spain to live with her husband. And n0w she is back in town, for two years. And she brought her family.

When we hooked up it turned out she is into anthropology also. I asked for her reasons to come back to where we grew up. And she came up with a wonderful story. She said, when her sons began to draw as children do, and drew the sun with a moustache, (“..of course– el sol!”) [die Sonne], she thought she wants them to also know where she comes from. Her spanish anthropology teacher, she added, who had lived in Japan for some time with her family, did understand her well. Her children have done red suns.
