This is my first draft of (part 1 of 4) of "Lan Ting" Prologue. To be able to master chinese calligraphy has always been in my mind. I am facing it now and I hope all can encourage me a little.

notice it is a neo-calligraphy.

" It is the 9th year of Yong He, in the beginning of late spring. We, all the literati old and young, are gathering at Lan Ting (Orchid Pavilion) on the northern slope of the Kuai Ji Hill. Amidst the gorgeous mountains and hills, dense woods and slender bamboos, the sparkling winding stream is flowing by. Seated in the midst of this scenery, short of the company of good music, we regale every single toast and poem that put us in the mood of a free and subtle dialogue.

Bro neo:

One word can describe"excellent" , itis a chinese article the title is 蘭亭集序 by 王羲之.
-------------------------------------------------
永和九年,歲在癸丑,暮春之初,會於會稽山蔭之蘭亭,修禊事也。群賢畢至,少長咸集。此地有崇山峻嶺,茂林修竹,又有清流激湍,映帶左右。引以為流觴曲水,列坐其次,雖無絲竹管弦之盛,一觴一詠,亦足以暢幽情

thk cheese, hope u can understand the content as well as this is a great piece of literature.

see the color-edited copy as well as the second chapter.

the translation as below;
" It is a fine day with lovely breezes. Behold the magnificent universe with abundance of myriad beings. Stretch your sights and relax your minds. It is the supreme bliss the eyes and ears can achieve. How enjoyable!

" While experiencing the ups and downs in our lives, we may be wakened by thoughts while meditating in a small chamber. Or, we may let go of ourselves in the open Nature. Choices plenty, tranquility or activity as one prefers. I am contented with whatever happiness is brought forth, however short the moment is. I am satisfied, not knowing that I am aging nor where I am heading, I am tired.

The background and the foud color are different from the first one you postsed. The 字體的創作非常自然,not like made by computer.


永和九年,歲在癸丑,暮春之初,會於會稽山蔭之蘭亭,修禊事也。群賢畢至,少長咸集。此地有崇山峻嶺,茂林修竹,又有清流激湍,映帶左右。引以為流觴曲水,列坐其次,雖無絲竹管弦之盛,一觴一詠,亦足以暢幽情。是日也,天朗氣清,惠風和暢,仰觀宇宙之大,俯察品類之盛,所以游目騁懷,足以極視聽之娛,信可樂也。

夫人之相與,俯仰一世,或取諸懷抱,晤言一室之內;或因寄所托,放浪形骸之外。雖取舍萬殊,靜躁不同,
-----------------------------------------------------------

譯 文

永和九年,歲次癸丑,剛進入春天三月的時候,大家聚會在會稽山陰縣的蘭亭,舉行春禊事宜。眾賢達們全到,不論老少都來了。這個地方有高峻的山嶺,茂密的樹林、修長的竹子;還有清水急流,映襯環繞在亭子的周圍。我們導引它來作為漂送酒杯用的迂迴水道,然後依序成列地坐在岸邊;雖然沒有各種樂器齊奏的盛況,一面飲酒一面作詩,也足夠來舒展幽深的情懷了。

這一天,天氣晴朗、空氣清新,宜人的風溫和舒暢,抬頭觀看宇宙的浩大,低頭視察物類的繁盛;隨著這些景物移動雙眼、馳騁胸懷,就足夠來享盡視聽感官的樂趣了,真是痛快啊!

人們在一起相處一輩子,有的會拿出理想抱負,齊聚室內相互對談;有的會把情懷寄託於某些可依憑的事物上,在身外的大自然界放縱自己。雖然進退取捨有許多差異,動靜好惡各不相同;

to eastcoast, glad that u like it. as long as u know how to draw then there is little problem on how to depict these figures. cause i drew them out one by one too, not that i am a good artist. .

see below for the past 3 of 4 and the rest of the translation.

" Things do change, only our feelings linger. What we used to be fond of will become the past instantaneously. We can't help but to cheer ourselves by recollection. Life, long or short, always come to an end. An old saying has it that : 'Life and death are the ultimate things.' What a pain! Every time I read about the writings of people from the past, I always sense their feeling reflects my own. I can only lament but not know how to verbalize. Life and death may be merely an illusion. Yet it is ridiculous to equalize longevity with short-lived. The future generations will look upon us just like we do our past. So, I document the lives of the contemporaries and their works. Time has changed, yet the desire to express the feeling is the same. Those in the future shall get what I mean when they read this article. "
