I have immersed myself in Wabi-Sabi for Artists, Designers, Poets & Philosophers over the last weeks and these three, short sentences on the nature of the universe (see pages 46-47) make me so happy:
1. All things are impermanent.
2. All things are imperfect.
3. All things are incomplete.
To me, this seems the essence of wabi-sabi. When I read these, it is like I have been given the okay to just be me today, and every day. Sigh, what a relief.
