The Spirit of Basho

The Spirit of Basho

I am including this paragraph from this particular journal because I believe it provides real insights in to Basho's motives and motivations, and allows us to see him as a man and a poet.

In this mortal frame of mine which is made of a hundred bones and nine orfices there is something, and this something is called a wind-swept spirit for lack of a better name, for it is much like a thin drapery that is torn and swept away at the slightest stir of the wind. This something in me took to writing poetry years ago, merely to amuse itself at first, but finally making it its lifelong business. It must be admitted, however, that there were times when it sank into such dejection that it was almost ready to drop its pursuit, or again times when it was so puffed up with pride that it exulted in vain victories over the others. Indeed, ever since it began towrite poetry, it has never found peace with itself, always wavering between doubts of one kind and another. At one time it wanted to gain security by entering the service of a court, and at another it wished to measure the depth of its ignorance by trying to be a scholar, but it was prevented from either because of its unquenchable love of poetry. The fact is, it knows no other art than the art of writing poetry, and therefore, it hangs on to it more or less blindly.

Almost Ready for Paint

Almost Ready for Paint

Some progress made tonight. Narrowed the shoulders, added some more folds on the drapery, changed the shadows on her face and darkened them up so I can see them when apply the first layer of paint next week. Tonight I prep the halo for gold leaf.
