"A beautiful 'flower' does exist, but the beauty of a 'flower' does not exist".
Hideo Kobayashi

 I think that seeing is choosing or discovering. When we see something, we realize the ezistence of figure, air and feeling. Since old times people have seen flowers and expressed their feeling with th skilfull usage of words. They do not intend to express special meanings of words, ideas and ideologies, but they try to refine words that they could impress the images of words.
I suppose, that the skill of drawing, carving and printing is the same as that the use of words. Those skills will be mature. The process of the aging does not always mean the progress of the world. History is not merely memorizing historic events but rather recalling them. I wish my body and soul could be enriched.
