While trolling around on the web for challenge ideas I came across something called Wabi Sabi. I love this concept and am stealing it word for word for this week's challenge. I'll post the link as well: Wabi refers to simplicity, loneliness. Imperfection or asymmetry. It can be anything – made by nature or by man – that has some type of flaw or irregularity. The presence of this “flaw” gives a unique beauty to the subject, like an asymmetrical shape on a ceramic object that can never be exactly replicated, or the unique grain patterns that are present in different wood types. Sabi refers to the beautiful imperfection that comes with the passage of time. It states that the use of an object, and the changes that occur from that use, make the object more valuable and beautiful. This word mostly refers to rust, but can be attributed to the decayed characteristics of wood, or the discoloration of pottery from contact with hot water, over time. Sabi gives us an appreciation of the value of age and experience. Your challenge this week is to show us the beauty in imperfection, the grace of aging, the value of experience.
