I continuously receive this wonderful gift from the universe: I meet very interesting people.
Takashi Yamauchi is one of them – he is my hero.
He is a sculptor and professor at a University in Japan.
He is the creator of this wonderful creature.
I asked him why he is crying: He sighed and tried to find the words too explain it to me. After some time that seemed to be forever, he said that the person he created is sad. The sculpture is representing humanity. People do not connect any more. Everyone is lonely and feels disconnected. This is why a river of tears is coming out of the eyes of humanity.
Thinking about this today, I am not sure if this is exactly what he said. But this stuck in my mind. The explanation totally fits for me and that is why these words stuck with me.
Every cell of me is working on connecting people again, looking to team up with people who have the same intentions coupled with 200% motivation to do that.
I really miss you and Mariko-san and hope that we will be able to meet again.
