Feeling Kanji 「漢字を感じる」

Feeling Kanji 「漢字を感じる」

by -

The word “calligraphy” is derived from two Greek words — kallos meaning “beauty” and graphein meaning “to write,” thus meaning beautiful handwriting, or penmanship. The Japanese translation of the English word “calligraphy” is shodō or 書道.

The first Chinese character 書 is a picture of a hand holding a brush which lends its sound to express the verb “to copy.” Therefore the meaning is to copy a thing by brush. The second Chinese character 道 expresses the chief, or main means of forward or direct movement, which is also described as a way or a road. So, Japanese calligraphy, 書道, can simply defined as “the way, road of writing.” 

In these pages are some of my favorite calligraphy — 書道. Please enjoy these views as you find yourself journeying down the way, road of writing.
