Japanese calligraphy is more than writing:
it's an art
an art of being ...
based on the breath, the patience, the sense of space, the participation of the inner body.
It is the art of being one with body and mind ...
It is being there, present, without waiting, without wanting ... to succeed, it is to accept what is there.
To be like a child, who dares, to launch out, without fear of being judged, without evaluating himself, free of the result, in the pleasure, the simplicity and the spontaneity ...
It is also to be in the humility of always being a beginner ...
Japanese writing can only be "drawn" by means of four objects, humble, millennial, nicknamed the "four treasures":
- The dry ink stick
- The wet stone in which we will rub it
- The goat hair brush
- Rice paper
It is a practice that combines the spiritual and the sense of pure beauty.
