Policy change 方針転換

I was fortunate enough to practice calligraphy under a very distinguished calligrapher since early childhood.  However, as this “About me” sectionshows I have seldom specified his name.

As you are certainly aware, Japan has entered into a new era, I decided to change this policy.

By this, I mean so far I have been feeling too embarrassed to unveil the name of the teacher who enjoyed great fame as a calligrapher all through his life, and fully realizing my own inferiority as his disciple.

Now, as more than twenty years have passed since my teacher the late Akiyama Kodo (秋山公道)has passed away, I began to feel it is wasteful only to enjoy the wonderful works he kindly gave me for myself.

Certainly I displayed a few of them at the five exhibitions both solo- and group-exhibitions I ever held.  However, I began to think this is not enough and I must extensively show his remarkable pieces of calligraphic art.

And here is the first one I would like to show.  It is a Chinese character from my name.  When he wrote one letter from the name of each of his granddaughter, he kindly did the same thing for me because he treated me as one of his granddaughters.
