Hi Bill,

Sakura Petals is such a beautiful story. Thank you for creating it.

We work with children in adversity, giving them access to magical storybooks to help them connect with the world. Our storybooks print on a single sheet of paper. We would love to collaborate with you and publish this story as one of our tiny little books.

It will be great to hear from you! You can reach me out at swastika@wallobooks.org

Keep writing! Keep inspiring.

Regards,

Swastika.

Thanks. Sakura Petals is my favorite story of 2022. (I think we'll need a special petal glue.)

Wonderful and full of wonderment. Children sometimes have the most amazing way of reading the clues in dire situations.

Great story, Bill. Sometimes it is best to think like a child.

I guess I need to stock up on glue sticks now. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Thank you, Bill โ€ฆwhen a cat gives me that soulful liquid eyes expression I just melt.

I hope to post again this weekend, still learning background tech stuff. Hello to Japan! I often watch the YouTube cat videos from Japan, like deliberate dinner prep with cats watching patiently.
