Inada Published in Ji no Chikara (The Strength of Characters)


– 烈 Retsu (Intensity) –

How do we live profoundly in characters? How do we deeply and freshly write them?
I deeply move the framework of the character retsu from the base of my life.

I fuse the form or shape of retsu that emerges from there — that is, its form, sound, and meaning,
Which becomes the strength of the character retsu.

Without the power and energy of the lines that create the strength of characters behind them,
There is no true strength.
