It is simply part of who/what we are.

    "Chinese calligraphy is like a rare, exotic flower in the history of civilization, and is a unique gem of Oriental culture. Graphically, it is comparable to painting in its ability to evoke emotion through a rich variety of form and design. As abstract art, it displays the rhythmic and harmonious flow of music. And from a practical point of view, it is written language." From the site. "these pages link Chinese calligraphy figuratively and literally to other oriental arts. Comparing it to dance, theatre, and even to medicine, these pages delve into Chinese writing's form, composition, and the origins of its graphic radicals" (Netsurfer review).

  23. A Pilgrim In Japan
    "The route of the eighty-eight temples of Shikoku is the classic Japanese Buddhist pilgrimage. Its 1200 kilometers test the body and spirit and open the mind to an experience of its true nature.

This book records what he experienced in deeply felt words and pictures." Ever think about the grindstone of "covering the material" associated with a unit, course or time period?

"The Inland Sea, a landlocked body of water bounded by three of Japan's four major islands, lies west of Tokyo and Osaka. Called the Aegean of the East, the region's sumptuous beauty is the backdrop for a traditional way of life where native islanders have historically remained isolated from each other, and the mainland.
