Turn to be 30-year-old.

 As a high school student back in 2004, when I was 16 years old, I had no idea what it's like to be a mid age man. Even more, I hadn't expected to be. That might not be surprising, since my mental illness was about to emerge at that time, and I thought I would have commit suicide anytime soon. Time went on, however, I managed to survive those depressive dark era, including several critical moments such as suicide attempt. During my 20s, so many things had happened. I've been to East and Central Africa, South East Asia, Central America, and Middle Eastern countries, where many of them struggle under the regime change, autocratic government, desperate civil war after that. There was divorce after my 4-year marriage. My doctor had finally told me that my mental illness is over. I decided to move to Tokyo from my hometown Nagoya. I became a big believer for natural life. And here I am, I'm finally 30-year-old now :)

 Perhaps my period of 20s wasn't as great as ordinary Japanese who is the same generation of mine. But, I love my life. Sketching flowers and old-fashioned architectures, taking a long walk with my camera, cooking warm soups in the freezing morning... I love them all, and hopefully I keep enjoying the rest of my life as well.
 Before updating this post, let me briefly share with piece of moments through the past ten years :)
