Welcome to parallel space, a place of surreal—but real—existence. My past memories always appear in my dreams in a way that is mixed up with my present life. The fields, the trails in the forest, the reefs in the ocean, and other places that I have played in, continue to extend in the depths of my memory along with my growth. Memories merge with my current life, squeezing out a new dimension. Sometimes I cannot use logic to explain why these dimensions are intertwined in my dreams. They are more like the echo of one world to another, or the friction between lines.
