the meaning of anaba

I'm calling this blog anaba, the same name I gave my first solo show. Anaba is Japanese and can be understood as a special place known only to a few. Like a secret swimming hole that only the locals know about. It's a kanji compound word combining the character for hole(ana) with the character for place(ba), but "anaba" sounds a lot prettier than "hole-place".

I wondered about that word. I can hear it in my head now that I know it's Japanese. This is Onajide of Miami Art Exchange.
