Delayed fulfillment of a promise

標準

These are for my dear friend from high school days.

.

.

I met her a month ago at a kind of a reunion and promised her to write one letter from her name 美 meaning “beauty”.

.

.

Actually, I am very grateful for her appreciation for my calligraphy, which is always encouraging for me when I practice calligraphy and try to create something new.

.

.

By contrast, there sure are some people who just don’t think good about my calligraphy.  Those people even won’t say flattering things about my calligraphy even though they fully know I have been practicing it for long.

.

.

For that reason, I knew I should have delivered on my promise immediately.  However, in actuality, these days I have only been thinking how I could make a good piece of the letter.

.

.

It took about a month and the worse thing is I only came up with my old idea, that is, a combination of a letter used at present and an ancient form of the same letter.

.

.

I sent her these two and the one put behind is my little, old piece with a phrase “fruitful, gracious showers” because she is precisely that sort of good-natured person.
