For this piece, I quoted a passage from Ms. Yukari Ishii’s blog, which unfortunately she erased completely some time ago. She is a super popular astrologist and writer and writes on many subjects other than horoscope reading.
The passage can be roughly translated…
“Misty kind of non-entity that might be going to be a river but forms nothing yet”
In those days, I was into using very light colored ink.
I was very much inspired by a book about Zen phrases written by Ms. Yukari Ishii, a well-known and popular astrologist and writer and picked one item from the book as a motif for my calligraphy work. Being a great fan of hers, I sent her my best work.
Then, to my ultimate delight, she posted its photo on her blog on November 11, 2010!!
Regrettably, however, one day she stopped writing her blog quite suddenly.
And more regrettable at this point is the fact that I had sent her the best one and so what the photo shows is my second best.
I read somewhere that it is good for you to start something new for taking this opportunity. However, no good ideas came into my mind. I only thought about growing more flowers in our garden to please my mother.
Here is a quotation from Ms. Yukari Ishii’s (in Japanese) comment from the astrological point of view for the Geminis for the week starting on April 13, which roughly goes:
During this period, what you have accomplished and accumulated so far is going to enhance the light that shines on you. What will be emitted from the middle of you will illuminate both you and your surroundings.
