I make sketches whenever I find something inspiring and touching. Those moments filter through my mind and create a small world in my sketch book.

Okinawa, Slow Life #2 ~Birth~

On the last evening in Okinawa, we encountered the most moving event on this trip. A mother sea turtle came to lay eggs on the beach. We could watch the whole event right next to her. She may be annoyed a bit by a big crowd, but she was so focused on her mission that she didn't care about us.
Just the same as a nature TV program, she made a hole in the sand and laid about 100 eggs in about one hour. It is a hard work. Sometimes, she took a rest and continued what she must do. It was very touching. I couldn't help appreciating the wonder of nature. Nobody told her what to do, but she knew exactly what to do. After everything is done, she went back to the ocean, trusting the life of nature.
I thought of human. How much are we feeling disconnected from the mother nature, worrying about unnecessary stuff and being scared of life and death. If we just trust the nature inside us, we'll be sure about ourselves.
