The carp streamers bless children



In the Far East, the carp is an auspicious fish.
They had continued swimming the festival history more than 1000 years.

Many wishes to the happiness are displayed here.




Now, I am seeing wind.
The carp streamers (
Koinobori) are swimming in the deep blue firmament.

Time, Space, Existence,   Eternally..  Stream of Universe...





Oriental spirit had carefully treated all element of the universe for several thousand years.
We might know it in subconscious awareness.

Till now, and for everlasting...

  16. It would be healthy to stop.
    The world's prefabricated blinde-believe in miracles will make wonders and questions
    end.

    It would be nice to live
    dream
    and
    observe pure life
