Whenever I read about the workings of the Japanese language, I realize how easy I got off as an english speaking person O__OI hope that you have lots of fun figuring out and solving the mysteries of kanji! :D
That's the perfect analogy! I've been thinking how to explain it to people, and you hit it bang on, and illustrated it beautifully to boot :D
Wow I was checking out your site and you have amazing talent! I absolutely love your watercolors! keep up the good work
Thank you guys!@Bren: they say that English is one of the hardest languages to learn, though, so we're lucky to have it as our native language! But yeah, learning kanji is difficult...@Peter: I'm glad you think so! It's my nerdy explanation, but if someone agrees, that's great!
