Long nights, Winter nichts: 永夜

Thank you for coming to the last Shodo workshop of the year in Basel(CH) /Bad Saeckingen (DE) area.

Our Shodo text was ;

“EIYA 永夜 “means long nights symbolizing the winter nights.

It can be read “nagai yoru”

•EI : 永 / eternity

•YA : 夜 / night(s)

”永“ is an extremely important Kanji character because it includes eight basic yet fundamental brush strokes for Kaisho/Block style – it called eight rules (八法)

Even if you are already intermediate level or advanced level practicing Gyosho style, winter season is a good time to reflect and review the basic strokes and techniques. You will see that each brush movement would become clearer and more developed after a few practices.

Here I put two images ; extra information about Kanjj science and background if you are interested.

Arigato,
