I like Chinese calligraphy
December 15, 2016 9:07pm CST
In ancient China, everyone used'brush' (traditional Chinese writing tool)to write,sadly speaking, with the advent of pen, ballpoint,especially the computers,nowadays few people grab brush to write; I am so proud that I still use that tool to practice calligraphy every day; here I post one of my penmanship, btw, do you practice calligraphy? Or are you conerned with your handwriting?

The most important thing is that it makes people feel peaceful when they practice; let me quote a paragraph for you from Coelo(who wrote the Alchemist): look at a skilled blacksmith working steel. To the untrained eye, he is merely repeating the same hammer blows, but anyone trained in the art of calligraphy knows that each time the blacksmith lifts the hammer and brings it down, the intensity of the blow is different. The hand repeats the same gesture, but as it approaches the metal it understands that it must touch it with more or less force. It is the same thing with repetition; it may seem the same, but it is always different. The moment will come when you no longer need to think about what you are doing . You become the letter, the ink, the paper,the word.
