Wabi Sabi

Wabi-sabi (侘寂) represents a comprehensive Japanese world view or aesthetic centered on the acceptance of transience and imperfection. The aesthetic is sometimes described as one of beauty that is “imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete.”

I love this idea. Wabi Sabi is all about accepting imperfection and accepting that most things are imperfect, incomplete and impermanent.

It reminds me of Kintsukoroi, that something can be more beautiful for having been damaged or imperfect.

Imperfection, transience, incompleteness – these are all realities of life and should be celebrated rather than hidden.

Just a thought..
