友人新得一块乌金丝楠阴沉木,我望着这块古意盎然,行云如水的木头,想到了草书“美”的字形,更联想到了距离产生美。古木跨越时空和今人结缘,现代人喜欢怀古回望前人的生活状态,距离似远若近。当然,人与人之间,太靠近时常常会有摩擦,适当的距离反而更看到各自的美。

A friend of mine acquired a piece of dark-gold Nan Wood recently. Looking at the antiquated wood with contour smooth as cloud-and-stream, the composition for the character
美(beauty)and the idea that distance creates beauty conjured up in my mind. Antiquated wood traverses time and space to reach modern men, while modern men have a tendency to admire the lives of the ancient people, feeling a subtle closeness to them. Naturally friction occurs when two people come too close together. They are able to appreciate each other’s beauty when they keep a certain distance.
