Important factor in life

Important factor in life

I enjoyed an exciting reunion and a delightful conversation with people who led me to the greatest event in my life.  It is so hard to put into words how grateful I am to them.

Strong woman

標準

 

Many years ago, at a language school I went to then, a teacher said to me, “You’re a strong woman.”  However, at that time, I didn’t believe him. I just couldn’t.  I am not very sure about that even now, but at present I am finally beginning to think he had an insight into true nature of me.

To an old friend

標準

I got an e-mail message from a good, old friend from our high school days.  Incidentally, as the Mercury is retrograding, we may meet with each other for the first time in many years.  The letter is the first one in her name.

Going back to the point of origin 

標準

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.”

Favorite flower and favorite haiku

標準

For this single-leaf screen, I chose my favorite haiku about my favorite flower, hydrangeas.  I remembered about this screen when a kind-hearted neighbor gave us these flowers from her garden yesterday evening.  This screen is an old work of mine from about ten years ago.  It welcomed visitors at the entrance to my first solo exhibition.  I am now flooded with many good memories of the exhibition.

Snail’s horn 達観

標準

This is a passage from a poem by Bai Juyi.  I learned it roughly meant what the use of fighting in a narrow space like a tip of a snail’s horn was.  It must be the best, of course, if you get that kind of detachment.

Incidentally, I did this one with my left hand.

I was given a written oracle of “Excellent luck” here before.  Maybe this shrine is a little indulgent with me.

Happy birthday 古代文字でお祝い

As the birthday of my valued friend for many years is drawing close, I wrote this instead of a common type of a birthday card.  Wishing for lots of future pleasures, I celebrate her birthday with one modern letter 楽meaning pleasure or fun and four of my favorite ancient letters of 楽.

Flower smiles 花笑

標準

I took this shot with a CD for comparison, that is, it is a pretty small piece.  However, I like both letters and what is more, combining them makes a cute phrase which I also love.

“Flower smiles” means “Flower blooms”.

Honesty is the … 正直の頭・・・

標準

The other day I wrote I saw a trained monkeyshow at Nagaoka Tenmangu Shrine.  On that day, I also got a written oracle of the shrine.

The comment roughly goes “even if no one is near you, you should behave nicely and should never tell lies as if knowing a hidden deity is watching you all the time.”

I totally agree with the comment.  Telling a lie is entirely pointless in the first place.  For, your lies are certainly bound to surface.  Moreover, if you tell one lie, you must keep on lying in order to protect your first lie.  It coincides what Keith Richards of the Rolling Stones said in an interview.  I totally agree with him, as well.

先日長岡天満宮で猿回しを見たことを書きましたが、この日おみくじも授かってきていました。

他人が見ていないところでも、神様がどこかにいると思って行儀よくしていないといけないし、嘘など言ってはいけない、というようなことが書かれています。

その通りです。そもそも嘘ついたって仕方がありません。必ずバレるからです。それに嘘をついたら、その嘘を守るために嘘を重ね続けないといけないでしょう。これはあるインタビューでローリングストーンズのキースリチャーズが言っていたことでもありますが、まさにその通りだと思います。

Trained monkeys show 伝統芸能ですが

標準

The other day, I visited Nagaoka Tenmangu Shrinewhere bright red azalea flowers were at their best.  Since it was in the middle of the early-May holiday season in Japan, I found so many visitors to the shrine.  And to my surprise, I also found a monkey trick show!  I was impressed with it and thought it was one of the Japanese traditional performing entertainment shows.

I am afraid this performing art of long tradition must be condemned by international animal welfare organizations, though.

Connected to the universe 左手作品

標準

I wrote all these with my left hand, which I have sometimes tried in order to seek for interesting and hot lines since long ago when I got stuck at my calligraphy work.  Therefore I have felt somewhat guilty for doing this.

However, on one occasion, someone told me that your left hand is connected to the universe.  And since then, I got to employ this method much more easily.

For instance, my work under my mother’s here, “smile” or “laugh” (笑) is my “left-hand” work.

https://www.facebook.com/Calligapher.Chio/

<To the homepageof this website.>

ここに写っているのは全部左手で書きました。昔から煮詰まるとこの方法を採りました。面白い線が書けるからです。

それでちょっと後ろめたかったのですが、ある時、ある方から左手は宇宙と繋がっているのだと教えてもらい、それからは堂々と左手で書けるようになりました。

例えば、この母の作品の下のも、左手で書いた「笑」です。

What my teacher left 先生の字

標準

As I wrote the other day, I haven’t written much about my first calligraphy teacher so far for some reason.

This stone monument shows the name of a Kyoto prefectural park located at the confluence of the Kamo and the Takano rivers.  The letters carved there were by my first teacher.

I think some people may recognize this and feel nostalgic.

I hear he wrote these vigorous letters when he was in his mid-fifties.

Policy change 方針転換

標準

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.

私は幼い頃から高名な書家に師事したのですが、この『自己紹介』にありますように、これまではその師のお名前は書いておりませんでした。

けれども、日本では元号も変わり新しい時代を迎えたのを機に、私も方針を変えようと思い立ちました。

というのは、これまでは、先生が偉すぎて自分が不肖の弟子過ぎて、恥ずかしくて大っぴらに言えなかったのですが、私の初めの師・秋山公道師が亡くなって20年以上が経ち、いただいたお作品の数々も、これまで開いた5回の個展やグループ展で少しずつご紹介しましたが、そのような紹介の仕方ではもったいないと思うようになったからです。

孫娘のように可愛がってくださったので、お作品をたくさんいただきましたし、少しずつでもご紹介したいと思います。

New era そのまんまですが

標準

Japan entered into a new era of Reiwatoday.  Thus, this is “new”.  It may sound so typical, though.

As I definitely would like to go with the flow, I used three brushes at a time for this, hoping to obtain lots of good results.

Visiting the grave, at last やっとの事で

標準

This month I finally got to visit the grave of my mother’s natal home.  It was the fourth try since I first planned it.  I was almost angry with my grandpa, suspecting if he didn’t want me to come and visit him.

When I was preparing the offerings for the ancestors, a lady came and talked to me.  I was sorry I didn’t remember her, because she was one of my distant relatives.

I then had a new idea that maybe he tried to make me come at that time of that day.

Mysterious and fascinating pictures タロットカード

標準

On this rainy day in spring, I went to ask for a tarot card reading.

The card reader claimed I had talent of calligraphy in the most inner part of myself, which was encouraging, indeed.  However, I just wonder what I should do to show it to the world.

The pictures on the cards are really mysteriously beautiful and fascinating.
