Lovely Daze
Curatorial Journal of Artist’s Writings & Artworks
by Charwei Tsai

Issue 8: Pilgrimage
Now Released at Printed Matter, New York

In a field
I found a memory in myself
a light freed from deep within

I am the sky you are the sky
I am the bird you are the bird
I am the sun you are the sun

I am the universe you are the universe
I am the light you are the light

Eternal light

~ Yukinori Maeda, “Universal Love #1″, 2009
