Fan Letter: Sei Shōnagon

Dear Sei Shōnagon,

You made me stop to think of what makes my heart beat faster.
For me, it is the process of thinking that makes it speed up.

To a person who spends too much time in her thoughts, you’ve changed my fear of being in my head into a pleasure where I can mull over ideas I never thought could be compared. Now I wonder what can one idea, such as kissing, mean to others? Is there other ways of kissing? Without your rain-drops startling me, I wouldn’t have even considered that actions and ideas could possibly be something unexpected.

With sincerest gratitude for speeding up my heart,
