I had to do some research to find out what a guqin is. I like the many sounds it makes! So this is Chinese "old time music"!

Todd, I'd like to send you a Guqin CD if you like this kind of music.

Thank you, this is very beautiful!
So, do you, perchance, also play Weiqi/Wei’chi?
Odd enough, I have recently decided that, for completion of my delving into The Four Arts (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Four_Arts) I need to explore the Banjo.
The Four Arts:
- qin (the guqin, a stringed instrument. 琴) / Banjo
- qi (the strategy game of Go, 棋) / I play Go, the ancient Asian strategic “sedentary martial art” (also known as “Weiqi” in China, “Baduk” in Korea, and “Igo” in Japan)
- shu ( Chinese calligraphy 書) / Can this be covered by my professional practise (and former teaching) of layout and typography (and formerly other applications)?
- hua (Chinese painting 畫) / Photoshop, Photoshop :-D
I’m well aware that counting my latter realizations as worthy counterparts of the ancient arts may be a bit cheeky, but … well, IMNSHO it’s also not about _having_to_ acquire virtuosity in these arts, it’s more about keeping a learner’s mind, to explore realms of expression and thought, to keep on pursuing disciplines in different areas, to train brain and senses to use a much as possible of what we’ve been given.
Thank you, Tom in Germany
