Hajimari no ao (Blue Beginnings)

Hajimari no ao (Blue Beginnings)

Do you believe it because it’s true?
Or does it become true because you believe it?

People are who they think they are.
Beginnings occur when you believe in the strength of the heart that believes.

The bracken represents the birth of great power,
while the arabesque pattern represents endlessly stretching growth.

I infused this piece with a prayer
for something to be born
something to begin
something to prosper

a prayer to this blue world
inhabited by the poetic sentiment
created in concert
with the eight million gods and spirits

a prayer to Toto Blue 

expressing a wish for all PORSCHE aficionados
to find the right match
to enter a beautiful, better life
