A few words about few words

If you don’t know a lot about something, it’s probably easy to say a lot of words about it.

It’s funny how our self proclaimed expert minds are sometimes externally louder than what our humble hands have internally graced and experienced.

On the other hand, if you truly know the ins and outs and beauty of something, you hardly know what to say…And when you do, your heart breaks as you try to paint its form and give a description.

What is the silence that shines out of your broken heart?

What do you know by name, by essence, by soul, by heart?

Tell us a little about that.

Your little insight here is going to take us a long way.

Wabi-Sabi…

…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.
