Hey there Urian,

I love that one. My brother who lived in Hawaii was really into the good luck turtle. I was immediately drawn to the water in the dolphin. It is all just beautiful. smile.gif I hate insomnia can make a person real cranky...

Bushido, the way of the samurai, grew out of the fusion of Buddhism and Shintoism. This way can be summarized in seven essential principles:


1. Gi: the right decision, taken with equanimity, the right attitude, the truth. When we must die, we must die. Rectitude.


2. Yu: bravery tinged with heroism.


3. Jin: universal love, benevolence toward mankind; compassion.


4. Rei: right action--a most essential quality, courtesy.


5. Makoto: utter sincerity; truthfulness.


6. Melyo: honor and glory.


7. Chugo: devotion, loyalty.


These are the seven principles underlying the spirit of Bushido, Bu--martial arts; shi--warrior; do the way.


The way of the samurai is imperative and absolute. Practice, in the body, through the unconscious, is fundamental to it, thus the enormous importance attached to the learning of right action or behavior.


Bushido has influenced Buddhism, and Buddhism has influenced Bushido; the elements of Buddhism found in Bushido are five:


* pacification of the emotions;
* tranquil compliance with the inevitable;
* self-control in the face of any event;
* a more intimate exploration of death than of life;
pure poverty.


Before the Second World War Zen Master Kodo Sawaki used to lecture the greatest masters in the martial arts, the highest authorities of Budo. In English "martial" arts is confused with "arts of war," but in Japan there is only: the way. In the West the "martial arts" are a fashion, they have become an urban sport, a technique, and have none of the spirit of the way.

Very inspiring post there, urian! I was in Ronin-Bushido for little over a year and loved it. There's actually a school here in Winchester, run by the same sensei I had, but I need to find the time to attend and of course, money is always an issue. sad.gif

Bushido is the way, the only way, the warrior's way.

Calligraphy needs something else. I think if you found a way to get the creapy look you'd really have a nice piece there. Blood maybe?

On perfectly flawed, that is neat smile.gif I really liked it Initial impression was, "Wow, that looks cool! skin cracked like a desert riverbed, amidst a beautiful face" Interesting contradictions smile.gif

glad you both lilked the other

Urian, it's been awhile since I have been in here to look at your work and I have to say it is all marvelous! I loved especially the black and white gal with the red rose petals and Perfectly Flawed! I love portraiture anyway. I couldn't get the link to work in Calligraphy, so I am assuming you must be reworking that one. Keep em coming. You are a very creative and expressive soul. You must feel very deeply in your heart.

I thought last night, that if you had another image of the lettering hovering above the marks in her skin, in calligraphy... that might be cool too. in full color......
