Cracks in the facades [can be] seen as opportunities; inspiration erupts as you careen over bumps in the road; you love the enticing magic that flows from situations that other people regard as rough or crooked. "That which is not slightly distorted lacks sensible appeal," wrote poet Charles Baudelaire, "from which it follows that irregularity -- that is to say, the unexpected, surprise and astonishment -- is an essential part and characteristic of beauty." (From Rob Breszny this morning)
I have finished the kitchen wall and shelving. This morning I added two pieces to hang my measuring cups and spoons ... and I fear I may have gone too far. I am not sure that the "slight offness" of the latest holders could be considered artistically beautiful ... or that Wabi Sabi really means getting it slightly wrong ... but at least now the area over my sink looks neater and things work better.
Have you ever noticed that once you clean up it becomes easier to keep it that way ... at least in the short term?
