Original Japanese



English Translation

I always want to write mundane things down that I know I'll forget otherwise. Whenever I think, "That was so mundane!" a grin spreads across my face and I run to make a note of it. Like, "Kids this age put their legs like this when they sit," or "middle-aged men leave their cups on the table like this when they're done drinking."

-- from Yoshitake Shinsuke's What is Writing?
