Imperfection

“Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius and it’s better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring.” ―Marilyn Monroe, Marilyn 

A blurry shot – otherwise known as “imperfect”, but I quite like it really.

I was reading last night about “Wabi Sabi” – which can be described nurtures by acknowledging three simple realities: nothing lasts, nothing is finished, and nothing is perfect.

In a nutshell, wabi sabi is a Japanese philosophy that teaches that beauty and  wisdom are not “out there” to be discovered, but are instead here in this  moment in the things that are imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete. It is the beauty of things modest and humble. It is a beauty of things unconventional.
