Every year, in schools across Japan, students are encouraged to pick a "word" for the year. This would be their hope, wish, prayer for the upcoming year.
They also learn calligraphy from kindergarten....sometime early in a New Year the two concepts merge...and they calligraphy their word for the year on a little plaque to frame.
The kids picked a word and then we practiced, practiced, practiced and painted our words.....

Living all of life before the face of God...
