Taken from Buddhist philosophy, the art of wabi-sabi is practiced by appreciating how nature works on manmade objects and places. So this year, maybe let that wild vine grow its way up your pergola or allow that verdant moss grow in between the steps of your pathway or let it decorate your garden borders. Be kinder to the wild plants that grow on your property. Don’t also fret about that chip in your flagstone or the scuff markings on your brick wall. Wabi-sabi is all about finding and appreciating the beauty in imperfection.
