River in the mountains

River in the mountains

.

It is only the first line of a poem from the ancient China that I found while searching for a material for my calligraphy by a keyword of midsummer.

.

The line roughly means “the river of clear water flows meandering widely just as it holds the village.”

.

When I read this, I remembered the house in the mountains of my distant relatives which is just like this phrase.

.

When I was a child my grandpa and my parents took me there several times.  It was a long trip taking a whole day and I got completely tired when we reached that house where my grandpa was born and raised.

.

These days, the same trip takes much shorter thanks to the newly built tunnels and roads.
