The greatest theme for me is
how to move the structure of a script to its utmost.

With the movement of each moment, I continue moving
So that I am not tied down to a motion.

As I become one with my inner breath.
At every moment of movement
While the moves are fresh and new,
The structure of the characters grows even deeper.

From complete self-reflection
My brush begins to rise of its own accord
My brush begins to move of its own accord
This movement is the most difficult of all.
