Calligraphy is not just about the art of writing
Nor is it just about beautiful writing

When we write, we give birth to each stroke
And each stroke has a life and a path that are unique to itself

Despite its abstract qualities, calligraphy is not an abstract form
Despite its stillness, calligraphy is a dynamic entity

It is closely related to the forces of nature
And the energies of the human being

It is about harmony,
The balance of life itself
