I was born in the endless depth of space. Surrounded by ancient ice, I felt a part of myself missing… something warm that will melt away the coldness in my heart. After traveling millions of years through the galaxy, I came across a planet that radiated an incredible heat. In an instant, I realized I found it! Coming closer, I was overwhelmed with indescribable joy. Leaving behind a mysterious sparkling trail of drops that you may spot in the nocturnal summer sky…
During those nights where you can’t distinguish hot from cold, I sit outside on the veranda. As I start to daydream, I suddenly find myself lying calmly on the seabed of the dark blue sea. Like an old wreck filled with never-told stories. In another moment, I catch a bronze tan in a deserted battlefield in the ancient Greece. Experiencing the feeling of wearing an abandoned, precious armor of a forgotten god. Then all of a sudden, I wake up and discover with surprising pleasure that someone moved me to my bed. So I continue dreaming…
You can find me in the old library next to the train station, the run-down jazz club, or gazing at the town’s fortress ruins on rainy days. I love reading old books about long-forgotten riddles and mysteries. My favorite one is this: ‘What always runs but never walks, often murmurs, never talks, has a bed but never sleeps, has a mouth but never eats?’. The things I couldn’t live without are my faded cap, my watonai goldfish and my rubber plant I always forget to water.
