Most of you already know that I practice archery (western style)😎😁🏹
One of the things I am trying to achieve on my return visit to Japan, is to watch (and photograph 😉) someone practice Kyudo - Japanese archery, or attend a competition.
You’re probably wondering why? 🤷♂️
Well, to me, Kyudo is the epitome of archery👌
It goes back to the very roots of form, posture and importantly mentality. These all link to each other and all play a role🙃
There is a phrase in Kyudo - “true shooting, certain hitting”; if you are committed to shooting, your form is correct and your mind is fully behind releasing the arrow and you aren’t questioning everything you are doing, then you are certain to hit 🙌
But if any one of those parts are out of sync, then everything else crumbles with it, and you’ll fall short of the target; and your expectations.
I guess you could take that philosophy and apply it everyday life - if you’re true to yourself, then you’re certain to get somewhere, or achieve what you’re after - only if you’re committed to it 🤔
I want to know what you feel, or what you notice or what makes you remember something, when you see a photo of mine. It’s all about the connection between the photo and you, with just one of three connections;
Emotions; do you feel calm, or anxious?
Eye catching; the person in the background or the colour of the taxi?
Remembering a memory; walking through a bustling city and remembering the sounds and noise?
Tell me; describe it to me. .
