Beginnings

Calligraphy can be about precision:  an exactness in the shaping of a letter, the pressure of pen on paper, knowing when to press down and when and how to swiftly, yet gracefully lighten up.  Such a balance --- just like life.  

I've been playing with letterforms and ink flowing out of nibs most of my life.  Yet, I recognize as a calligrapher I'm still a beginner.  The period of my life I'm in right now and what I'm choosing to focus on, I'm going to be staying a beginner for a while yet.

Stay tuned for the explorations of my current life:  there's a great deal of self-healing going on round here!
