Going back to the point of origin 

This is the very first task that my first calligraphy teacher, the late Mr. Akiyama Kodo (秋山公道) gave me about 57 years ago.

Unfortunately, I can’t think of anything else when someone comes to me and asks me to teach them basic calligraphy and I always give my new students this same task in the first lesson.  I asked my senior calligrapher how I could teach the beginners differently, and her answer was, “That’s only natural and it can’t be helped.  People can teach only how they were taught, after all.”

  1. I love your calligraphy and I think it’s fitting to share your love of calligraphy this way when people come to you asking for help. It must be a task with a lot of sentimental importance for you and I think it’s nice to share that with future students.
