yorukamome @ 05:46 pm: endless works around new house, endless hardworking moment - but I
stubbornly keep on trying not to forget my real "mestiere"...this is the correct word I use to underline
a fundamental difference, when I'm asked about my job: teaching is my "professione", but I LOVE the
antique meaning of the first term, suddenly suggesting a "bottega d'arte" and so on - well, here you are
my latest works, these two big kakimono hanging now on my walls; I'm also adding translations (they
both show a sentence and a related haiku) :

気の春嵐 「ki no shunran ・ springstorm of KI」

雨上がり 「mizuiro ha ・ seishun sou da ・ ameagari」

light bluegrey, like a bloom of youth after the rain

青春の風景 「seishun no fukei ・ landscape in bloom of youth」

春風に 「eda odori ・ sono kage kabe de ・ harukaze ni」

dance of a branch, its shade on the wall through spring breeze

vorpal @ 09:22 pm: Where to start?
I've been studying Japanese for a few months and I'm completely enamored of the 漢字. I would love to get into Japanese calligraphy, but I have absolutely no idea where to even begin.

Can anyone give me any tips? Where does one find the appropriate paper, tools, etc, and indeed, what kind of tools are good for a complete beginner? Any good websites to order this kind of stuff? I would love to be able to ink some lovely characters to give to friends or to hang around my own home.

Any help you want to shuffle this poor beginner's way would be fantastic and much appreciated.
