The Year of Simple Imperfection

Wabi-sabi is the Japanese art of finding beauty in imperfection and awe in nature. It is authentic, simple, uncluttered and a celebration of the marks that time, weather and use leave behind. Wabi-sabi is flea markets, handmade, itโ€™s aged wood, untreated paper, unfinished hems. ย It reminds us that we are connected to the world around us โ€“ and like those objects, we too are imperfect, natural, changing and transient. Through wabi-sabi, we learn to embrace liver spots, wrinkles, rust, and frayed edges, and the journey of time they represent.

For 2012 I seek to embrace this way of life. To live simply, eat mindfully and create an environment around myself which speaks of those things that matter most to me: living a full,ย meaningfulย and connected life, even if it leaves a few marks along the wayโ€ฆ







I look forward to sharing this journey with you along the way. Happy 2012!
