My mom's calligraphy
My mom has been practicing calligraphy for years now, and she's reached the stage where she can express her style (vs. having to strictly follow the classics), and I just love her work. I have a piece of her's in our living room.
Recently, one of her works was chosen to be shown at the Mainichi Shodoten at Kokuritｓu Shinbijutukan (the National Art Center in Tokyo). I am so proud of her piece. My mom!!
It is "fuchiya" (不知也 ふちや) which means that it's sometimes better not to know everything...from a Buddhist saying that there are things in life that are OK not to fully understand, and that can bring happiness.
Especially since I know how hard it is, I'm in awe, and very happy that she is Tesla's grandmother - so elegant and artful. Such a great role model for me and Tesla. And for this piece, my mom is using such a giant brush that when she practices at home, she needs the full living room and uses her full body. It's not a regular thing at all.
