How Pretty The Snow Is! #1LinerWeds

#4 Daughter reminded me the other day of a time back when Mom was active. It was winter and we were outside in the snow. Mom and Sara may have been sledding, I don’t remember.

We were talking about how pretty the snow was, with the sun sparkling off it.

Sara said, “It doesn’t even look real! It looks like anime (ˈa-nə-ˌmā ) snow.”

To which I, clueless dunderhead that I am, replied:

“Who’s Anna Mae Snow?”

A WRITING PROMPT FROM ME TO YOU: Write about a misunderstood phrase.



I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

    LOL! I haven’t seen Anime snow, but now am going to look it up. I am aware of what anime is though. 😀

    Just for fun: we watched Giri/Haji, and the beginning credits were pages from a graphic novel. Husband had never heard of them, and how important they are in Japan, so I was able to explain that the Japanese are very literate, and a big part of it IS these novels, with their careful graphics which carry a lot of the story. ‘Comics for grownups’ is not a way to explain them. Just as anime is not cartoon shows for teens.

      Totally correct. The Studio Ghibli anime is often suitable for young people and even for children. They need to be discussed, though, because they also address deep thoughts and feelings.

        I can only imagine how one gets to be literate in the pictorial languages. I wonder what all that capacity is NOT doing in MY brain.
