本日英国カイリブックス出版より” 生き甲斐 IKIGAI “という素敵な本が出版されました。カバーの絵と書、インデックスの書等させていただきました。とても興味深い本です、ぜひ手に取って読んでみてください。日本語の”IKIGAI”という言葉がそのまま世界で使われるようになる日も近いかもしれませんね。
” IKIGAI “- giving every day meaning and joy
by Yukari Mitsuhashi
‘The word ikigai is formed of two Japanese characters: iki, meaning life, and gai, meaning value or worth. Ikigai, then, is the value of life, or happiness in life. Put simply, it’s the reason you get up in the morning.’

– To Visit
– Otozu_retu, Tazu_neru, Hou
In Sanshotai three calligraphy styles
Sosho ⬅️Gyosho ⬅️Kaisho
: 言/ Word, to say, to speak
: 方/ wide, four directions
訪 ; initially meant ‘ asking widely in order to follow a line of inquiry ‘ which involved ‘ visiting many people ‘ and – now ‘ to visit ‘ is a major meaning. It rarely means ‘ to inquire ‘ nowadays.
Morning calligraphy in the Black Forest!
Happy Easter everyone!!

Thank you to all those who took part in the Workshop in Bad Säckingen.
Great to see the familiar faces again after a long winter break and some new faces!
Compliment on your mindfulness!
Next Workshop in Bad Säckingen is on Sunday, the 8th. April.
Come and join if you live in the Basel area!!
The theme here was ” Cranes/ Tsuru ”
The cranes symbolize a long lasting love, relationship, good luck, a long life.
The text was ” Tsuru Ten ” : crane-sky
The Kanji 鶴 has 21 strokes and a complex composition with some major techniques.
天 has two side brushings and both Harai techniques. Relatively it has a simple straightforward balance line. One of the perfect Kanjis for the beginner to practise.
As we practise with one themed text here in the Bad Säckingen course, I suggested that a few new comers should concentrate on only 天 and those basic important techniques of the Kanji.
All did fantastic Shodo!
