About the Artwork

The plants that I’m taking care of in my house finally sprouted and I’m watering them. I value bonding, we can not connect with people without bonding.

Medium: Colored pencil, paint, crayon

There are a lot of funny people in my family and we are always lively. I play with my dog in my free time. I don’t like bugs. When I grow up, I want to be a police officer and contribute to society.

6.13.12 Letter # 9
Dear Friends of America,

Thank you for the beautiful pictures and the heart-warming letters. I also appreciate your concerns about the Great Earthquake of Eastern Japan. Do you have earthquake often? In Japan, every day, we experience various scale of earthquakes, sometimes minor and sometimes major. Lately people are saying that another big earthquake will happen. I am very scared. However, we have started to live normally. Or course people who lost their houses due to the Tsunami, live in temporary housing, which is not properly insulated and very inconvenient: in winter there are drafts that freeze their bodies, and in summer stifling it is hot. I hope that everyone will live normally soon. I want everyone to think what “live normally” means.
