"Wabi Sabi is the Japanese art of finding beauty in imperfection and profundity in nature,of accepting the natural cycle of growth, decay, and death. It's simple, slow, and uncluttered-and it reveres authenticity above all. Wabi-sabi is flea markets, not warehouse stores; aged wood, not Pergo; rice paper, not glass. It celebrates cracks and crevices and all the other marks that time, weather, and loving use leave behind. It reminds us that we are all but transient beings on this planet-that our bodies as well as the material world around us are in the process of returning to the dust from which we came. Through wabi-sabi, we learn to embrace liver spots, rust, and frayed edges, and the march of time they represent." Tadao Ando
"You won't find Wabi Sabi in Botox, glass-and-steel skyscrapers, smart phones, or the drive for relentless self-improvement. It's a beauty hidden right in front of our eyes, an aesthetic of simplicity that reveals itself only when animated through the daily work of living."
"Beauty in what's natural, flaws and all."
Isn't it Wonderful!!!

"It amazes me how small a part of life is taken up by meaningful moments.Most of them are over before they start,although they cast a light on the future and make the person who originated them unforgettable" -Anna and the King
