-159- Wabi-sabi (侘寂)

Standard

Noun. From Japanese.

“A way of life that focusses on the moment and accepts imperfections, natural progress and decay”

wabisabi

This translation comes with a caveat – it is probably in no way a complete translation. If you do a quick Google search for wabi-sabi, you’ll see exactly what I mean! This is no word to be taken lightly, and there are multiple variances (although all of them seem to pertain to one common goal), but overall it has an interesting ethos =]
