Lockdown Cartoon #31: Angel

When Naomi finds feathers, she holds them in her hands and flaps her arms as if she is a bird.
She has told me she would want to be a bird when she’s grown up. But the other day, she told me a different story. 
“I had wings before I was born.”
I can never tell what Naomi says is true or just an imagination. But… what if children were angels? I often feel there is more to be taught by children than to teach them. Whether children are angels or not, I know for sure they are great teachers.
Here is this week’s cartoon.
Artist and children’s author Noriko Matsubara documents her family's experience during COVID-19 lockdown with relatable cartoons.
