Flowers of life shining in the large sky
When I was about to finish the last art piece for the Mind-scape exhibition, I saw a big display of fire works in the night sky. It was an annual summer event at Jingu palace. The sound shook what I called the sky rocket center, my new atelier. I went out to the veranda and enjoyed watching them but after a while I got bored because they were artificial. I knew that nothing was as beautiful as the full bloom of flowers of life within each person. I envisioned also a beautiful future scenery where human life would shine high above a heavenly sky. Though it was still hot, clouds in the sky were already telling of the arrival of autumn. A sunset beam was mysteriously highlighting an encounter with a divine being. It was brilliant and dynamic and I felt as if it was cerebrating my coming exhibition. Our future should be wonderful. It also reminded me of the music created by Mr. Idaki Shin for the event. I listened to it while I drew drawings. The music always helped me to overcome something that bothered me and I have experienced a great tide of life. Many volunteer staff are working very hard to realize this very big exhibition so I am sure of its success. This will be a very rare opportunity to appreciate something quite unique on such a big scale, and moreover Mr. Idaki Shin will kindly play music live. Many people’s sincere wishes are unified in creating this dream project. .
