I've been going to Noriko Maeda sensei's home every Tuesday night as part of my research. The class is a gathering of sociologists, physicists, engineers and architects of all ages and nationalities. We sit at a long table, each person equip with an ink stone, ink stick, paper and paper weight and for an hour or so we write, talk about food, and occasionally mention calligraphy. Maeda sense is a tremendous talent, her sense of humour and wisdom immediately puts everyone at ease. She made calligraphy fun.
