Today, over ninety years old, she still sits still after breakfast every day, and I am amazed at her perseverance. Now, when I sit down and write.
Immediately, the mind is as calm as water, as if entering a paradise, and when there is a clear and clear pleasure, I realize that it is calligraphy to cultivate the body and mind.

The beauty is silent, the avenue is simple, and you can understand the world and travel freely. This is my favorite, but after the age of 60, I have time to sit down quietly, write a page and draw a picture every day. And because there are two places in China and the United States, no teachers are willing to accept such students, so they have to come to this so-called “self-taught”.

People live to the end, interesting is more meaningful than useful. Because of fun, our lives are rich and elegant, and we will not become slaves to life. Chinese people regard calligraphy and painting as a good way to learn from nature and understand the world.

Self-cultivation is true. Whether dancing, writing, painting, or being a human being, beauty and fun are my unremitting pursuit throughout my life.
