Janisha nods, "I could not tell you what would or wouldn't grow either, but likely it wouldn't be much. Rice and Tea are really the only plants that grow equally well in both Zogeku and Rokugan. And that I suspect is more a sign of how important those plants are and the divine favour that shines upon them.
But I wasn't talking about live plants for that would be far to much. Just perhaps the petals from some flowers, the wood from some trees, and similar such items. Simple things you actually make the paint from, rather then the tree that grows them."
Kakita Kyoumi wrote:"She shakes her head. "I do not think we shall necessarily change our art around this...but...there will need to be ways for these things to be side by side while keeping the traditions strong. We will find those ways."
Janisha didn't seem to mind the Kakita's words, for her happiness doesn't fade, "Rokugan is currently changing how they think about art by your own words. Perhaps what I give will help. Perhaps it will not. Perhaps the art critics of Rokugan will dismiss the traditions of Zogeku, find them having nothing to teach Rokugan. This is all possible.
But you give this one a chance to share her knowledge with Kakita and Shiba Artisans. You give the colours of Zogeku a chance to be judged by those who are considered the best artists in Rokugan. That my words maybe seen by a master Artisan, that they potentially could give someone a new idea. That is honour enough, Kakita-sama."
She hesitates for a second then said, "There was a time, before it became clear my path did not lie in that direction, that my duty was not that of an Artisan, that I would have loved to one day stand in the halls of the Academy and learn from the Sensei within. Perhaps it is silly, but the fact my words will reach them, even if I will not....its more then I could have hoped or dreamed of.
These are why you honour me, Kakita-sama. Some dreams are small, and are better that way."
