Body Language

body limbs are as communicable as languages.
When writing calligraphy,
the genuine emotion in our mind could be perceived through the strokes.
Just like a dialogue, our limbs fluctuate with moods.
Via the conversation of body languages,
it enables us to clearly comprehend the message from the other.
