These are a few pages from my journal/sketchbook from this month. I have a deep fascination for Chinese art and in trying to learn more about this art form I have found out that their art is really an extension of their written word. The modern words stem from older pictorial representations and require a more intuitive approach while learning them I feel as opposed to other languages like English. So I have started to practice some calligraphy as well and I find it thoroughly enjoyable and I have noticed that it centers and grounds me while bringing me to focus very much like a meditative practice.
