Etchings in the Sand…

Thoughts and Photos from the Desert…

Wabi-Sabi…

The essence of Wabi-Sabi is that true beauty, whether it comes from an object, architecture or visual art, doesn’t reveal itself until the winds of time have had their say. A cracked pot, for example, has an essence that a perfectly round pot is lacking. Beauty is in the cracks, the worn spots, and the imperfect lines.

It is an understated beauty that exists in the modest, rustic, imperfect, or even decayed, an aesthetic sensibility that finds a melancholic beauty in the impermanence of all things.”
