Translator's blog

From the translator’s journal ~Soul of language~

Finally finished the translation of
the Franciscan Saints by Robert Ellsberg.
Wonderful book!

Contained were
various experiences
such as mystical,
suffering and loving,
but not a difficult one
to understand.

Thanks to
the soul of language
which helped me
from time to time
so I could get through.

Was it the spirit of
the saints who helped me?

I am very grateful for
the opportunity given to me
to translate and read this book.
