…is a Japanese concept that essentially underlines the grace and beauty of things that one would typically consider asymmetrical, incomplete, or imperfect.
Wikipedia notes, “Characteristics of the wabi-sabi aesthetic include asymmetry, roughness, simplicity, austerity, modesty, intimacy, and appreciation of the ingenuous integrity of natural objects and processes.”
What a great word to waltz with for the next seven days.
When we’re off the hook of perfection, we can then be held and hold the rest of the world with a hope that rests outside the lines of superficiality, perfection, and the status-quo.
Say it with me…wabi-sabi.
Better yet…see it with me.
