稽古とは一より習ひ十を知り 十よりかへるもとのその一」という利休さんの一首が有名ですが、基本はやはりおろそかにできませんね。精進を重ねならねばならぬと考えさせられます。

There is a well-known poem attributed to Rikyu: “Keiko towa ichi yori nara’i ju’u wo shiri ju’u yori kaeru motono sono ichi” (What is the nature of practice?  You learn from 1 to 10, and then go back from 10 to 1).  As they say, practice makes perfect.  You can never neglect the basics.

こちらのお茶杓を社中初釜で使いましたが、このお歌が彫りこまれています。

This is the chashaku we used for our Shachu‘s hatsugama with an inscription of the poem.
