Series of the Seed of Liquidambar Styraciflua (American Sweetgum)

That day. I was walking with my children when my 8 years old daughter brought me this seed. It was the same kind of seed that my uncle and aunt showed me a long time ago, when I was in high school. It seemed that the seed took root in my heart and brought back the memories and the ambitions of my uncle and aunt who had started their careers as artists in New York in 60’s. Forty years later, the seed is held in my daughter’s little hand. The seed was dried and prickly but it seemed to contain all the hope and possibilities for her future.

A seed falls on the ground and it starts to grow with water and with light.

Everyone has a seed inside themselves. I hope we can find it and grow it with our own-and others’-care. I believe that people make a land of tranquility and harmony in your heart and your surroundings for the seed to grow. Especially for young children.
