For me, they have always been a constant source of reference and inspiration, and I intend to celebrate the impact they leave through my own interpretation and creative vision.

Today, I celebrate and honor that joy, searching for the words to truly convey what I felt. A smile that kicks you out of your chest, a blissful glow of gratitude in your eyes, a precious moment where necessity and beauty reach out and meet. I want to convey these things in words. However, Joy is a living thing, so if you dare to say its name, you may be afraid of being hurt.
May my bow and open arms express my indescribable feelings and be a greeting that welcomes the promise of renewed life and new blooms this early spring. ”
