“(…) Again, it is a great comfort to have expressed one's feelings in a letter even though one knows it cannot yet have arrived. If letters did not exist, what dark depressions would come over one! When one has been worrying about something and wants to tell a certain person about it, what a relief it is to put it all down in a letter! Still greater is one's joy when a reply arrives. At that moment a letter really seems like an elixir of life.” ― Sei Shonagon, The Pillow Book

To me, Japanese lettering is a form of meditation. You align your heart, mind, and soul together, so just like ‘kokoro’ they become one.

Shodo has become to me a school of life, not only because of practicing Zen in writing but because just like learning how to control the movement of the brush, you simultaneously take the full control of the movement of your own self, practicing inner peace and patience at the same time.
