"Hope" Japanese calligraphy



"" (bō, nozomi). It is translated as hope, look at, look forward, etc.
This character is written by Kanzi,
Regular script.

Etymology : Phono-semantic compound
望 ⇒ 目 (eye)  +   壬 (expand)   +  亡 (lose)

The state that a person stretches his/her neck.  
And in search of the thing which there is not.


The universe was nothing.
This earth, this Mt. Fuji. They were created from there.



Hope seems to lead all to the creation.
Yes. To the future filled with hope...

  6. Perder... Si, para encontrar hay que perder... Seguir adelante con el máximo gozo, sin pensar en las dificultades, con máximo gozo, ampliando el horizonte, desde nuestro corazón.
