Where the idea comes from

Hojoki (my ten-foot hut) was written in 1212, Japan, and has been really getting me since I was a teenager.

The beginning of the essay was immediately imprinted on my mind.  Here the extract of the translated writing is.

“Though the river’s current never fails, the water passing, moment by moment, is never the same.  Where the current pools, bubbles form on the surface, bursting and disappearing as others rise to replace them, none lasting long.  In this world, people and their dwelling places are like that, always changing.”  (Washburn University website,2010-2011)

I intend to craft jewellery based on this idea.
