Day 224 #MakeArt365

Kitayama Cedars, pencil, 2015
“You like going to the Kitayama cedar village, don’t you?” her mother said to Chieko. “Why is that?”
“The cedars all stand there so straight and beautiful. I wish human hearts grew like that.”
“Then aren’t you just like them?” her mother asked.
“No, I’m bent and twisted . . . .”
-Yasunari Kawabata, The Old Capital
