{january sky}

The sky outside suits my mood today. It makes you want to curl up in a cozy chair with a blanket and get lost for hours in a good book. An excellent selection is The wabi-sabi house: the Japanese art of imperfect beauty by Robyn Griggs Lawrence. I am finding myself drawn to all things Japanese of late...especially their aesthetic.

Wabi-sabi invites us to set aside our pursuit of perfection and learn to appreciate the simple,unaffected beauty of things as they are. It is an aesthetic that welcomes comfort and subtle spirituality into the home. It is about simplicity and humility, things that I crave more and more as I get older. It is very appealing to me.

Check it out. It will ring as truth to your soul.
