When did we join the adults, and when did we say goodbye to our childhood? I'm sure there is no such time.

Eiko Kadono



The writer, who had grown up without her mother's memory, got confused when her daughter told her to become an ordinary mother. And she decided to continue to be a mother that she thought ordinary, and she made the girl character in her children's story say like this. From then on, the writer who had too much illusion for what she had lost relied on it. From “Memories That Writer And Witch Met."
