Thanks to both of you. George, thanks for the terminology I was trying to remember! Do you know who does kakejiku in Hawaii? I haven't been able to find anyone yet. It will mounted vertically, with the kissaki at the bottom for proper reading.
Steve, I kind of like the bamboo idea, but am not sure how the fragile oshigata tracing paper would be mounted. I'm also wondering if living across the street from the ocean would make it prudent to have the oshigata mounted under glass or plexi. We're having some serious winds blow through the house this evening (35-40 mph), & I cringe to think what would happen to tissue-paper if caught by a gust, even if mounted with backing as a scroll.
For those of you who don't live in the tropics, our homes are wide-open to the weather, both for wind & temperature. Right now, it's 73F outside, & 73F inside.
Anyone can be tough for a season,
but it takes a special kind of human to rise to life's challenges for a lifetime.
