So from this time I add designs with calendars, responding to the requests from some readers.
Also following the advise from I’ve added my stamp to identify my wallpapers.

Happy new year! Hope you’re all having a wonderful year start.

From this year I’m making the desktop wallpaper even simpler than the past years; without a calendar! I rarely refer to the dates on my wallpaper, so this is to try to make things simple and efficient.

My resolution for 2013 is to “disseminate” my ideas and messages to the world more and more. First of all I’ll publish an ebook for Kindle soon (I need advice on technical and tax issues). I’m also working on a few products to be released this year (hopefully). In any case I always try to be passionate enough to do the above. In order to do so, I’ve been buying red items around me and try to wear at least one red thing every day. My favorite color is actually blue, but the color for 2013 is red.

The spirit of self-help is the root of all genuine growth in the individual.
Samuel Smiles

Inspired by the beauty of needle ice, which also has the power to raise the whole ground. It reminds me of the spirit of doing-by-myself to change myself.

Mr.Hollands Opus is one of my most favorite movies. I especially like this scene when he teaches how to play the clarinet.

“Play the sunset” he says to his student, who’s struggling to get the right tone. And that line is so memorable and inspiring that I just can’t forget.

There is no reason not to follow your heart.
Steve Jobs

There won’t be a road on the way because a road is where you walked along.
No existing road that you can see is yours.
But as long as you have a heart, you’ve gotta follow it.
I am following my heart.

‘Cause June is the rainy season in Japan.
This time it’s a bit earlier than usual because I’m planning to visit the U.S. next week.

I really hope Japan will get back on its feet again soon. But we will, if we get together and show our incredible power. I believe that those who are unfortunately not here because of the mishaps must have wanted to see one of this nation’s most beautiful flowers, sakura. So I made the trace of the petals like the north east coast of Japan that was badly affected by the earthquake and tsunami.

Some of you might already know from my tweet that I’m planning to visit Milan, Berlin, Madrid, Lisbon, Paris, Cologne and Amsterdam from mid to end of April this year. I’ve been waiting for this chance for such a long long time. I’ll tweet as usual during the stay and post lots of photos I take there on my Flickr. With (a lot) more time and money I would’ve included London, Brussels, Vienna, Copenhagen, Stockholm, Oslo and Helsinki, but maybe or rather definitely next time.

“Wrinkles should merely indicate where smiles have been.”
Mark Twain

Yeah, I know it’s ahead of time, but there can be times when I do this in time, right?
This is a great quote I love of Mark Twain.
