Happy new year! It’s been a slow start to 2013 for us… and I think it’s a good sign. I believe 2013 is a Wabi Sabi kind of year. You can fall down the stairs and get a call that your son is throwing up on the floor all in one day, then the next […]

I basked in the pleasure of walking through my Wabi Sabi neighborhood today. My son and I exited our front door with a bang and deer scattered into the woods from their hillside perch.

I like what this artist, Matthew G. Welter, says about carving wood: that cracks are glorious– “Cracks are at once the markers of imperfection and a welcome, random release of tension in an otherwise well-ordered reality. Cracks are justification for, and acceptance of forces we cannot control. Dodging them has led to some of this […]

One place I find Wabi Sabi is in my “to do” list. If I need to get certain things done, and I just can’t get them done that day–either because of circumstances or because I just am not in the right (creative) frame of mind–I no longer force it.  I put it on the next […]

By pure luck, here was our chance.
