The first story of the anthology short story series “A song from the laundry room” is titled “A memory is something you have or something you have lost”.
This story records ordinary scene through the window of my girlfriend Seiko's home in Copenhagen, 2019.
The pictures stand as it is just ordinary scene of one, but it can be something meaningful scene for other one.
She’s spent most of her time at home admiring this scene whenever she was both depressed and fulfilled. This scene’s been standing as it is.
Before I visited Copenhagen to see her, I’ve received the letter from her. she wrote that the life will be better a bit depending on how thoughtfully you think on ordinary day.
‘A memory is something you have or something you have lost' This beautiful sentence was followed afterwards.
I fold the letter and felt this strange mixture of wistfulness and hope, and I wondered if a memory is something you have or something you've lost.
She moved to Antwerp right after I visited her in Copenhagen and started what she wanted to do.

A song from the laundry room
“A song from the laundry room” is my latest anthology short story series which seems it doesn’t make any sense for someone else. However, I personally have it as a small treasure of my life.
The title of the series “A song from the laundry room” is named after the sentence from Brazilian author Clarice Lispector’s novel.
