more wabi-sabi --

Maitri quoting Sue Bender:
". . . when a prized bowl broke in Japan, they didn't throw it away but repaired it with gold and silver, and the bowl once treasured was even more valuable than before."

and

wabi-sabi in the Seattle Times news

and from voices:
"our souls each being of the same paper but that which makes us unique is the creases left in the paper from all the folding and unfolding of experience"

and The Deep Longing of Wabi Sabi by Richard Powell (see my wabi sabi link of still in the stream for more by Richard) . . . dealing with CS Lewis, wabi sabi and haiku!

I've really enjoyed reading your information here -- not knowing a lot about wabi-sabi, I plan to study more --
