I once read an author
who said that
English sentences are long and complicated compared to Chinese,
and that the calligraphy, the characters themselves,
are responsible for this.
He said that the English language builds ideas like a tree,
with branches from branches; whereas
The Chinese language builds
?Learn to change trees to bamboo and bamboo to trees?,
the author suggested.
So often, it seems to me
that my ideas are like trees.
And rarely, are they like bamboo.
I was thinking about this, painting bamboo?Etsy Store.
