Lin Hsin-Chen – Memories – Piecing Impressions
I cherish the memories of forest environment that I saw when I was young. The environment and ecosystem have changed by human. It becomes chaotic and disturbing. Every time I visit the forest, I feel like piecing impressions. I wonder if what I see is a friendly environment. Is it original or artificial? The emerging issues keep disturbing me.

Lin Hsin-Chen, this piece is bittersweet, isn’t it? I am so blessed to live where there are wide, unpolluted skies, green fields and clean, clear water. I’ve not experienced what you describe — yet — and can only pray it will never happen, that we will be willing to change our habits and ensure it never does.
I have to agree, forests are wonderful places and what the present day environment demands of them is depicted in your quilt. Well done.
Margaret and Kaylene, thank you for your lovely comments!
There have been natural and man-made disasters within a month in Taiwan. Those disasters are threatening to most people living in a big city. We human beings need to learn a lesson from it. God Bless the earth!
