My daughter, Jennifer suggested that this blog ~ ITLLDO: an obsession with imperfection ~ was described in a recent article found in Woman's Day magazine. The term Wabi-Sabi refers to "a beauty of things imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete. It is a beauty of things modest and humble. It is a beauty of things unconventional.."
YES!!! That is exactly what I am trying to emphasize here in my blog.
The article goes on to say, " It is also two separate words, with related but different meanings. "Wabi" is the kind of perfect beauty that is seemingly-paradoxically caused by just the right kind of imperfection, such as an asymmetry in a ceramic bowl which reflects the handmade craftsmanship, as opposed to another bowl which is perfect, but soul-less and machine-made. "Sabi" is the kind of beauty that can come only with age, such as the patina on a very old bronze statue. Wabi and Sabi are independent word stems in normal speech. They are brought together only to make a point about aesthetics."
Thank you Jennifer !
