Susan Greene and Catherine Keefe are two California sisters who celebrate michikusa, a Japanese word with no exact English equivalent. It literally translates as “grass on the wayside” but in everyday usage it means “loitering on the way, or taking a pause to look around.”
Catherine’s essays invite a fresh look at a common thing. She provided book and author recommendations here, and occasionally a writing prompt or tip. She’s moved her writing game over to her own website. Come visit there: www.CatherineKeefe.com
Thanks so much for visiting backyard sisters. The gate’s always open. Please contact us to request reprint permission, book a custom workshop, schedule a guest presentation for your group, or simply say hi.
