Writer's Greeting The world is about to undergo a revolution. Mass production environment destroyed from World War after democratic revolution and industrial revolution. At the same time, the IT revolution has risen, and Corona's erosion is rapidly demanding changes in the lifestyle of all humankind. During a big change, many people become confused and anxious. However, at such times, I strongly thought that it was love. Love for the earth, love for others, love for family, love for yourself. I believe that love is what leads to a better future. While I was almost anxious and almost lost sight of love, I made a work with my own love.

I am very pleased to see how this work is produced. We would like to express our sincere gratitude to everyone involved. I hope that even a little can contribute to the amplification of love in your life.
