A poem

Hello everyone, or good evening?

This year has been very busy and things around me were constantly changing. However, I feel that I am able to step forward to my goal by the support from people around me.

In this blog today, I will write about the poem/artwork in BIENNALE in Shiga prefecture, which I went to last weekend. I wanted to write about it here as a memory.

【 Sparkle 】

When my daughter had bubblegum for the first time,

She expressed herself as very pleased like an adult.

Her face was very pure, fresh, and sparkling.

We, adults, would think it's childish.

However, that moment she felt was very precious

and beautiful that will never come back.

Takuma Noda “BUBBLEGUM”

When I saw that poem and the artwork, my parents’ feeling staged my heart.

I am not married or either has a child yet.

But I guess my parents perceived all the feeling I was having when I was a child,

And those feelings will be their treasure for the rest of their life.

Now, all those feelings are a bit fading in myself, but that poem made me stop and recall the time in the past when I was a child.

Ok, that’s all for today!

In the next blog, I will write about what I had been feeling and thinking while I was in Japanese high school.

Thank you for reading until the end every time!
