About me

Location Japan
Introduction Hello, I'm a Japanese as well as a global citizen. I named my handle name "Stardust." I'm consisted of particles, like a stardust, drifting in space, hoping to shine with her spirit burning bright someday. Still, such particles feel and think on this planet -- what a mystery, what a wonder, what a blessing! My icon lotus flower symbolizes "spiritual growth from the muddy darkness to the light of the sun".
