Old, imperfect and incomplete ...

This Asian Altas Moth, all tattered and torn ... whispered for me to slow down and take a closer look as it nears the end of this part of it's lifecycle.

                                                    Wabi - Sabi

        Ask 100 different people to describe Wabi-Sabi and you'll get 100 different answers ... that's why I was so excited about choosing this topic for the Round Robin Challenge.  I can't wait to see what everyone else comes up with. So ...

              My choice for J-link du jour is all of the other Wabi-Sabi entries around J-Land. Stop by and take a look for yourself.

This was difficult at first, b/c I didn't know what a Wabi-Sabi was.
It WAS a challenge!
Thanks Coy, it will be hard to top this challenge.
Excellent choice for your entry.
Marie

I thought it was a GREAT idea for the challenge.  Thanks for introducing me to the concept.  Now that I'm aware...I know this is something that I feel deeply.

Beautiful photo!

Thanks for coming up with such a great challenge!  I love your photo and the way you've presented it, with the jagged edges and all.  Reminds me of the dead butterfly on our window sill. :(  - Karen

All things are imperfect, all things are impermanent, and all things are incomplete.  Beautiful.  I think your moth captures the concept wonderfully.  :)
