I live in my dreams — that’s what you sense. Other people live in dreams, but not in their own. That’s the difference.

Half Moon Bridge, 1941
Tōshi Yoshida

From WIki:  ”Tōshi Yoshida (吉田 遠志 Yoshida Tōshi?, July 25, 1911 - July 1, 1995), was a Japanese printmaking artist associated with the sōsaku-hanga movement, and son of shin-hanga artist Hiroshi Yoshida.

One of Yoshida’s legs was paralysed during his early childhood. Not being able to attend school, he enjoyed watching animals and his father’s printmaking workshop. Encouraged by his grandmother Rui Yoshida, Tōshi often sketched animals.

Yoshida’s artistic career was a long struggle between fidelity to his father’s legacy and freedom from it. Hiroshi Yoshida, a shin-hanga landscape artist, dictated Tōshi’s early artistic development. In 1926, Tōshi chose animals as his primary subjects to distinguish himself from his father, who was a landscape printmaker. However, in the 1930s, Tōshi started making landscape paintings and prints similar to his father’s works. Father and son traveled together and even painted side by side. From 1930 to 1931, Hiroshi and Tōshi traveled to India, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Singapore, Calcutta, and Burma.”

One may have a blazing hearth in one’s soul and yet no one ever came to sit by it. Passers-by see only a wisp of smoke from the chimney and continue on their way.
