A calligrapher muses...

NOTE: This post is a few weeks old and the commission has since been completed and mailed.

I can see why calligraphy is respected/revered globally.

As the calligrapher dips nib into ink, the mind is constantly trying to figure out the best way to map each letter, each sentence to what would best convey the message for the receiver. It's in each stroke that the calligrapher judges how slow or how swift the pen must be.

While I listen to Chamber music that reminds me of Franz Liszt, I'm reminded of this calligrapher contract.
