Kaizen through Shoshin

A little more Summer work and a recent visit to Degas at the Royal Academy.

A comment in a recent lecture, regarding working on a production where you are always learning, like a child, reminded me of a Japanese word/ideology and a term from Zen Buddhism.

Kaizen - "...continuous slow improvement..."

and Shoshin - "...beginner's mind..."
Both are things for me to remember, the latter especially in the pursuit of not hindering myself through thought.
