These small insects die after the summer goes or even sooner. They usually have a few more days to live. How long have I lived? More than sixty summers, 64 years have gone to pass by me, almost in no success, in total boringness, but how many plus alpha years more? How much work can I still make in this time left for me? Too little, or still very much? These small lives of insects teach me far deeper about the meaning of my life's time than I can understand well myself.

Religions tell us something about eternal life after our death. Some believe we are to be re-born in the insects' world. I wonder if this is true for me. Whatever it is I admit to feel totally free and relieved, after I could give this historically tough theme my own answer in this book, TOKOYO NO MUSHI, 2013. (Yoshiichi Hara in the afterword)
