Everybody has their own great talent for something. The trouble is, most of you (including me probably!) seem not to be aware what it actually is. If you found one in yourself, it would certainly be a really great moment for you.

When I was a kid, I once thought I might have a talent for painting. The thought started after I won a prize in a painting contest or something at school. Funny enough, the prize-winning landscape work was an unfinished one because I forced myself to wait to go to the bathroom and couldn't concentrate when painting. Nature called me, but there was no place to do my business in the nature around.

Maybe, the painting happened to look artistic because I did it in a fog. And now, I know I'm not artistically gifted. ;)

So, folks, here is a girl who is beginning to draw out her artistic talent. Nora, a former student of mine and so called in class, is finding herself in the field of art. She was a cheerful, eager student and has kept in touch with me even after entering college in Tokyo. She's a senior now. Wow, time surely flies.

Nora, or Megumi as her real name is, is giving a small exhibition of her paintings titled "What are you looking for?" at a cafe in Tokyo as part of her study in college. If you stay around Tokyo, please go and see them.

Nora, gambare! :)

* Oops... The photo is blurred. So, you know, I think you'd better go see the real one to make sure how good it is. ;)
