書き初めKAKIZOME :The first calligraphy of the year
We normally write our wishes, target, or motto of the year. This year l have written 日々是好日(nichi nichi kore kounichi) which is one of the Zen phrase that l like. This phrase has many meanings
- Every day can be good day depend on your attitude or your thought.
- It is important to live the present.
- We have to do the best to make the better day.
- Just accept the day as it is.
I will try to remember this phrase, when l feel down, this year!!
The kakizome can be burned in the dondoyaki day read more about this tradition on my post
