“Engrave my proof of life into beautiful tree rings and create the future again today.”
I’m one of the weaklings.
When I looked back on my past, I often got very depressed.
What supported me at such times was the warm shape of love—the heart.
As I repeatedly imagined and drew it on paper, somehow my clouded mind began to clear up.
As my mind repeatedly got clouded and cleared up, I gradually began to see things positively, and I arrived at an answer.
Everything that makes up who I am has meaning, and that invaluable past creates a wonderful future.
I decided to engrave this feeling into a painting so that I would never forget it at all times.
I wanted to make it into something that would give me the motivation to live whenever I see it.
