healing spirit rises
from the sea
I missed Draw-a-Bird Day in March. Amabie is not exactly a bird, but they have a bird beak. A Japanese Yokai spirit, Amabie has reappeared recently in fresh interpretations all over the world. The image of the Yokai itself is supposed to act as a charm against infectious disease.
Mine is a bit more fierce than most, but I feel the ferocity is warranted. You can read more about Amabie, and see some gentler interpretations, here and here.
Tomorrow starts NaPoWriMo! As Nina is still on haitus, I will be posting each day at my blog https://kblog.blog/. Join in!
