Wabi Sabi

I’m not sure which of my readers has the background of Wabi Sabi.

Apparently a cousin, who’s name remains concealed for her protection looked it up following a comment made by me.

Wabi Sabi is a world view centred on the acceptance of transience and imperfection.

It’s an ancient Japanese philosophy which embraces a simple aesthetic where essentials are eliminated and trimmed away

So with coming through this last reno I’ve been learning to embrace Wabi Sabi or appreciating the beauty in A naturally imperfect world. This my friends means flaws and all.

Yes folks I’m looking for enlightenment.

Maybe it was the difficulty and problems that surfaced that broke us down.

What surprised me with my cousins comment is that she hasn’t come across Wabi Sabi Home & Design Studio located in the heart of Edmonton. Yes that’s 20544-114th street NW.

There’s even a blog about gutting a kitchen.

In the end I told her not to confuse this with Kemo Sabe:

Yes Wabi Sabi is so different.

So think about it,

And live life with simplicity, nature and imperfection.
