Woody has forgotten many things since that day.
He forgot what mom told him, forgot to water dad's rose flower, forgot where his faithful dog Pudding came from, and forgot that he hasn't grown up yet.
Woody is taking Pudding with him to visit his grandfather who lives in the countryside. As the bell tolls to the passing of the tram, Woody is slowly drawn back to the past.
Jimmy was invited to attend the triannual Echigo-Tsumari Art Triennale in Niigata, Japan. Invited artists will use the regional landscape as inspiration to create localized land art. Jimmy decided to write an inspiring and touching story to thematically connect the land art he had created. Kiss & Goodbye is a seemingly simple and light-hearted story but is actually a profound piece that expresses the creator's heartfelt concern for the environment, land, and life through his boundless imagination.
