‘Wabi Sabi Rocks’ – Day 188/365 – Triptych

A balanced life isn’t about doing a little bit of everything, perfectly.⁠ It’s about doing a little, and enjoying letting some of it play out imperfectly.

This frame was originally set aside as a ‘dud’ because one corner had come out a tad obtuse and therefore not perfectly square anymore.⁠

But having decided to continue my mindful and zen watery style triptychs, my hands found the skew little frame and made a diamond of it instead.⁠

A balanced life isn’t about doing everything in moderation, perfectly.⁠
.⁠
It’s about softening into the beauty of imperfection.⁠

“This Japanese term means “a way of living that focuses on finding beauty within the imperfections of life and accepting peacefully the natural cycle of growth and decay.” ⁠
