In my dream last night, I seem to have seen someone who left a strange impression on me.
I think you already know that, due to some sort of circumstances at my family home, I was taken in by my parents when I was still a baby. Perhaps it would be more accurate to say that I was abandoned. In any case, I unfortunately have hardly any memories of living with my birth mother or what she looked like.
The person I saw in my dream was a woman with stunning black hair, and for some reason I can't explain I felt a familiarity in her beautiful fingers as she combed her hair and plucked her koto.
When I think that she may be my real mother my feelings towards my birthplace grow, and I feel so sad.
