The Empty Space 間

  • When the gardener prunes a tree, to allow space between the leaves, to let it breathe, it has meaning.
  • When a worker takes a break in the middle of a busy day, to go to a quiet place, to drink tea, it has meaning.
  • When kids are taught to bow, they are instructed to deliberately pause at the end of the bow before they come back up, to create enough MA in the bow, to give it meaning.
  • When a karate fighter keeps a safe distance from his opponent, to defend agains kicks and strikes, it has meaning.
  • When a bird pauses between notes of a beautiful song, to communicate and lift spirits, it has meaning.
