There are times when I think that "the day before yesterday" which is one day before yesterday is denser to me than yesterday which is the more recent past.

Shoji Yamafuji



Something in which you crossed swords at the risk of your life thinking that your life was over if you withdrew there, something that prevented your heart from breaking off just in time, something that starts to ache only when you come loose. People finally notice these things after "fermentation" time. On reflection, I want to be a man who worry about "the day after tomorrow" as well as "tomorrow" also about the future. From essay, "Showa!" written by the illustrator.
