When I draw with sumi ink, there are things that don't go well, things that don't go the way I want them to, such as blotting, shading, and play, and results that are better or worse than I imagined, but I accept these things and think of my next move on the spot as I work. Personally, I feel that this is similar to interpersonal relationships. It is the same with the attitude and words of people you meet on the Internet or on the street. The relationship with them and the feeling of facing unexpected and uncontrollable expressions that appear during production are very similar. Therefore, my current work is like training or simulating how to relate to others in the context of interpersonal and social relationships, and it may be similar to training. But I don't think that training is about endurance or mental discipline, but rather the act of searching for a better way to live.
