Thanks to you all and your works, sincerely with " What " Japanese calligraphy

"The Blue Planet Earth"

Watching Mount Fuji on New Year's Day.
It is lucky in Japan.

A lot of friends gave me many encounters and encouragements last year, too.
With a lot of excellent works...

Those lovely cultural exchanges presented deep emotion to me.
I thank to all friends who visited my small the Far East space.

All your works are elegant.
I heartily respect them, and was always impressed by them.

"Once in a lifetime encounter"
Treasure every encounter, for it will never recur...
I reverently accept the providence.

風になびく 富士の煙の 空に消えて 行方も知らぬ わが思ひかな
西行 (1118 – 1190)

fluttering in the wind Fuji plume disappearing in the sky   don't know whereabouts my thought
Saigyō (1118 – 1190)

"何" (nani). It is translated as what, why, where, which, how.
This character is written by Kanzi, Semi-cursive script.

Etymology : Phono-semantic compound
何  ⇒  人 (man) +  可 (can)

Man can challenge anything, anytime.
In the new year, what is your target?

What will be waiting you?

I pray that your this year be splendid.

   マタイによる福音書  24章 27節

For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; 
so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.  

A Happy New Year. 
This year is good for you.

    Un An Nou fericit,iti urez din Romania!

    La multi ani,Ruma!

  27. Happiest of New Years to You Dear Ruma! You add such beauty to our world. A world where indeed we must challenge those in power. Ourselves too . . . to care for our beautiful 'blue planet' and all its living creatures. I hope we all raise our voices high and take actions in how we spend our currency in supporting a saner life. Secrecy in governments (ours and yours) is never a good thing and we all need to stay alert to what is going on. Currents of waves will disperse radiation and drones kill innocents . . . and on and on . . . there is much to challenge. You, with your words of wisdom and beauty shared are a light in the dark cloud of greed that surrounds us all. There is hope for the new year when there are voices like yours in the world. Many thanks for your inspiring photography, calligraphy and words. Blessings for 2014! In hopes of world of love, Carol

  28. Feliz 2014, preciosas vistas para empezar el año....saludos Tony
