Tae and Sha under the cherry blossoms, thirty years ago. By Taeeun Yoo~


I have read about women artists who’ve lived together in a hazy creative dream—even for a short spell. Trina Schart Hyman, Tove Jansson, The Red Rose Girls…It’s always made me envious and a bit sad that I didn’t have it for myself. As much as I have tried to live an interesting and free life, when it comes


down to brass tacks...

This is a great biography for children. You can feel the inspiration oozing from each page. As an adult, I would have liked more information, but this is a perfectly suitable book for younger readers.

John Wills

Thank you for being my friend and may the blessings of peace, joy, and success brighten your days. A friend is one attached to another by affection or esteem. One that is of the same nation, party, or group that favors or promotes something, which is how we met here. I will just say you’re very special and a highly favored. I would greatly appreciate you’re viewing my webpage to read a full chapter and reviews to which one wrote:

"Not since The Color Purple have I read a book that evoked such emotions. John T. Wills possesses the ability to transport the reader directly into the life and struggles of his main characters story. I was educated in a way that did not afford me the benefit of truly understanding the significance of the historical events taught from a stand alone perspective. This book actually touched my heart and inspired me to increase the equity in my "dash"! Excellent -- Tonja Covington
