Wu-wei.' Chinese Calligraphy. The Taoist principle that one must place their will in harmony with the natural universe. Some translations are "effortless action" or "action without intent."

Why don't we teach calligraphy in school any more. It used to be a respected art - now, kids can barely write. Any old scrawl will go.
