✨there is light in imperfection✨ And when this light gets in and shines upon you, when your feeling exposed, vulnerable "broken open" there is a breathtaking gratitude and reverence for it, that creates deep internal movement and change.
Wabi stems from the root wa, which means harmony, peace, tranquility and balance. Sabi means “the bloom of time.” It connotes natural progression — tarnish, hoariness, rust — the extinguished gloss of what once sparkled. Sabi things carry their years’ burdens with dignity and grace, becoming more interesting and beautiful than they were before.
