PublicitéSupprimer les publicités ?



It was rainy day when my 15 years old little sister took this photo.It's an inspiring one,you have to admit.
The two dewdrops were just standing there,waiting for a gentle breeze to take 'em away...
Later,when i saw this photo i thought ,"This is the way i have to blow into my flute; soft, just like those perfect shaped liquid spheres, and gentle ,just like the breeze they're waiting for to start their journey..

Have a creative week,Chris...

Very nice and poetic thought!
I am sure if you continue playing and being gentle like these two drops and the breeze - the bamboo will show you the way!

I love your thoughts about this photo Chris. I too aspire to play like these delicate yet strong dewdrops.

I'll be in touch. Smile

I've been working on an idea of a book for inspiring playing shakuhachi. It would be filled mostly with pictures just like yours Chris and there would be an occasional short quote about the beauty of playing shakuhachi.
