“There are still things I don’t understand about the brush; I know that when I practice. I know what kind of lines I want. The lines have to be ones with great integrity, a great rationality; and also ones that are visually appealing, because the role of an artist, of course, is to communicate. Hopefully my sho, my calligraphy, will get better and more mature as I get older. I remember when I first began to study with Morita he and I were talking — and he says to me, ‘You know, I’m looking forward to growing old.’ I was kind of befuddled by this. I was only about twenty-six. I thought, ‘What is this old man talking about?’ So I asked him, “Why?” very incredulously. And he said, ‘Well, I want to see how my art will grow and how it will change.'” Scholar, priest and master calligrapher Ron Nakasone shares more in this thoughtful interview.
