A tale is a window.
The world is filled with various tales. These may be like virtual windows in real.
What does the vision from a window mean? They may cut a part of the world, and project plainly. There are facts and fictions also. Even fact, each person sharing the same thing will have a different feeling from the other, moreover a person not sharing will have a more different impression. Is the most important thing whether it is true as you rather than as others?
I want to keep a feeling to see a rainbow through your window.
And a feeling to bite a apple also.

[Novel]Flowers for Algernon (by Daniel Keys)

The adult society which seems wonderful and complete at once. However, is it full with what a contradiction? We have to sometimes betray someone and sell a mind and live cleverly...

[Novel]Night of the galaxy railway (by Kenji Miyazawa)
I was probably ten years old when I read it first time. I had read it, because of my mistake, just when an animation, "Galaxy express 999" , boomed in Japan. I felt a book plain at that time, but it left something in my first impression. My strong impression is a tale, which is inserted an episode, "the fire of scorpion".
One day, the scorpion chased by a weasel had fallen in a well to intend to escape from his enemy. And he looked back his life to eat some insects till now, and said, "why did't I give my body for him to eat." The god, which had a feeling of pity, lifted him up as the stars of the sky...
We might uncosnciously hurt someone to only live, and we might be hurt by somebody. It's unavoidable, still sad.
So, to live must be difficult, and painful, you know.

[Novel]What dose a person live with?(<-right?) (by L.N.Tolstoy)

So, the Load forced him to do it, and change him to a person, and said, "A human being lives with three thing. You should find out." Before long, he began to work at a shoose shop, and...
Well, what's now the three things?
Do you want to find out, too?
