Wabi-sabi and my mossy step

Category: Barn Conversion Journal August 21st, 2012 by mbc

I was just about to begin stripping the moss from the shaded face of the garden steps when I was reminded of the Japanese concept of wabi-sabi.

Wabi-sabi, is a Japanese aesthetic concept that beauty can be found in impermanence, transience, and imperfection.

So embracing the concept, I saved myself a job, spared the moss and left the steps alone…
