MMM, i know what it means.
空 is known as sky yet it also means the void. Similar to 無. I was talking to my wife's friend, she is Japanese, and we were discussing some calligraphy texts. She said that 無 has a negative meaning for her, yet she has changed her mind after I explained her what it means in Zen philosophy. Absolute nothingness as in absence of distortion and desires clouding our view.
For you 水 is hostess clubs, and for me it is a fantastic cosmic force.
