In life there are moments that are irreplaceable.
When a flower sends out buds and tells of the coming of spring.
When the moonlight meets the night sky and steps cautiously on the earth with both legs.
At these times we should be able to taste such true preciousness if we open our hearts.
It may be an act to confine such things forever by carving a stone or wood.
On this site, I hope you can listen to the voice of these works.
I thank for the encounter here with all of you.
