January 4 1983: Moyuan Suibi : New Year Prints
Every principle has two sides: the positive and the negative. The Chinese, who place much importance on “virtue”, have within them a latent “conservativeness” that has led to the inevitable falling behind of their science and artistry. Rather than being on the attack, they are often on the defensive; this has resulted in today's emphasis on the “old” above the “new”.....
January 30 1983: Clog-throwing Song
During the earliest part of Chinese civilization, the“Book of Songs” most commonly reflected the voices of the people, especially those of the commoners. Poems were divided into three types: “feng”, “ya” and “song”. “Feng” referred to “guo feng” (“airs of the states”), which was also known as folk songs. “Ya” referred to “da ya” (“major court hymns”) and
March 18 1983: One-stroke paintings
Recently there was an exhibition at the Art House Gallery. I visited and found that the artist and I seem to share a few similar interests. It's a pity that I have never met him. This is because he is also fond of “character paintings”, and this includes “one-stroke paintings”. Yao Tuo tried to introduce us, but as I was hitching a ride with my friend Ye Ri Sheng, I did not have time to chat and had to leave in a hurry.

Recently there was a “Chinese character painting” exhibition at the Art House Gallery. One afternoon, Mr He Weicheng sent over some pictures to my house, encouraging me to paint one.

April 3 1983: Discussing Chinese Character Paintings Again

July 31 1983: Zen Poetry
Although Bodhidharma was an Indian, he was highly worshipped by the Chinese and Japanese, especially for his Qinggong. At Shaolin Temple in He Nan Gao Shan, he sat for nine whole years. During that time, a knowledgeable and articulate middle-aged man named “Shen Guang” came purposely to Shaolin......
August 21 1983: Da Bo Gong
Anyone who has truly contributed to mankind while alive will be remembered, respected and worshipped, becoming, quite naturally, a kind of “God”. As for those who merely pretend to be good while they are alive, it is quite pointless to force others to pray to them, no matter how powerful or rich they might have been.
