「A Comfortable Moment(心地よいひと時)」
たくさんの情報・モノであふれる時代。
混沌としたこの世界に追いつこうと、必死に走る私。

たまに訪れる、1人で過ごす休日。
青い空、揺れるカーテン、風に揺らぐコップの水をぼーっと眺めていると、時の流れを忘れてしまう。

それは蒼くて、透明で、ぼんやりとした世界。

焦らなくていい
自分は自分だから
ゆっくり進めばいい

時がゆっくりと流れる

心地よい白昼夢の中
私だけの大切なひと時。


We live in an age overflowing with a lot of information and things.
I am running desperately to catch up with this chaotic world.

Sometimes there is a holiday to spend alone.
Gazing blankly at the blue sky, swaying curtains, and a glass of water shimmering in the wind, I forget the passage of time.

It is a blue, transparent, hazy world.

Don’t be in a hurry.
I am who I am.
Just take our time.

Time passes slowly.

In a comfortable daydream,
I spend my own precious moment.
