The SHEEP / GOAT poeple are born in those years: 

1931 - 1943 - 1955 - 1967 -  1979 - 1991 - 2003 - 2015


The sheep (goat, or ram) is among the animals that people like most. It is gentle and calm. Since ancient times, people have learned to use its fleece to make writing brushes and skin to keep warm. As it is white, people describe delicate and precious white jade to be 'suet jade'.
Thus it is close to the meaning of good things.

Strengths
People under the sign of the sheep are tender, polite, filial, clever, and kind-hearted. They have special sensitivity to art and beauty, faith in a certain religion and a special fondness for quiet living. They are wise, gentle and compassionate and can cope with business cautiously and circumspectly. In their daily life, they try to be economical. Women born in this year are willing to take good care of others, but they should avoid pessimism and hesitation. They are kind in heart and commonly have symmetrical figures and features.

Weaknesses
Sheep year people are often worriers who are shy, pessimistic, moody, indecisive, over-sensitive, weak-willed and puzzled about life. They are easily inclined to be deeply religious. They are timid in nature and like to be looked after by others. They like flattery, compliment and suggestions from friends. They do not dare to express their love openly and usually have interests in strange theories.

Antique Kimono collage / ’ THE FLOWER RHAPSODY IN RED ’

09-29,2010


I spread and let this perfume float around you
just because I make you sleep deep



I show you these forms, and beg you to give me a smile
just because I devote myself to you



This smooth and fine texture is there
to calm your mind down



I keep showing so many impression-full modest colours to you
just because I would like to give you a joy



The crimson pattern is my feeling -
which became flower-sound to heal you
which became a part of rhapsody 

I just play this crimson poem, so you will cheer up.

Japanese Washi paper collage とも和 ’ TOMOWA ’

09-08,2010


In the days of a primary schoolchild
on the KUSHIRO moor

I saw for a first time
Japanese crane's love dance

That was the way of expressing their love
it was the way of confirming the love

I hear
when the cranes become a pair once
they stay together till one of them dies

How overwhelmed
- they are able to do such beautiful dance
till they die

I find it
terribly
beautiful

A summer collage * A Day Dream *

08-09,2010


She did not talk much.
But she was good at imagining
- she loved to create illusions.
And as time goes by she was getting better and loving more.

At the border between this world and dreams.
She was floated into the countless patterns
and nourished herself and her soul.
Countless colourfull stories healed her heart too.

It might've been away from this side.
Maybe it was a belt of mirror reflecting the flesh.

She only hopes it will be helpful when she meditates next time.
