Example text

Again he began to weep; and the old couple, left speech­ less by his tale, joined him. Patches of tears joined the bloodstains in the sand. A figure was approaching along the shore. “The ex­Emperor,” said Iga.  As he drew near, his resemblance to Taro became evident.  Iga presented Sobei and O Yone, explaining what the couple had done for Taro.  The three joined him; and their prayers min­ gled with the roar of the sea.  He had decided to remain on the island for the rest of his days. And remain he did, cared for by the old couple.

He was the most prolific of artists—a fountain of images—a kind of mirror of the world.  But his drawing abili­ ty was recognized; and at the age of eighteen (in 1778) he was apprenticed to Shunsho, one of Edo’s leading artists.  He also married and had three children.  This independence of his— along with a forceful personality—led to tensions at the stu­ dio; and finally he was expelled. ) Thus, Hokusai—dubbed Shunro—found himself working alongside Shunko, Shunjo, and Shunei! 83 decided to sell the brush­name Shunro (which his reputa­ tion made valuable) to another artist, and take a new name: Sori.

Was the Bronze Buddha truly larger than he?  Reaching it at midnight, he knocked on the high door.  And descending from its pedestal, it walked to the doorway, bent low, and squeezed through.  And the Whale was dismayed to find that he did indeed have a rival in size.  The Bronze Buddha was gone —its pedestal was empty! Then he heard voices from outside.  They were debating something.  And using his rosary, he carefully measured each of them—announcing finally that the Whale was two inches larger.
