Freddie, you so fine.
Thanks!Of course it's easier to look good when framed by a spectacular vista.
freddie ......you are wabisabi.and I am beginning to suspect you enjoy it.
"Characteristics of the wabi-sabi aesthetic include asymmetry, asperity, simplicity, modesty, intimacy, and suggest a natural process."Sounds perfect to me.
also, beautiful sorrow, melancholy longing.
According to Leonard Koren, wabi-sabi is the most conspicuous and characteristic feature of what we think of as traditional Japanese beauty and it "occupies roughly the same position in the Japanese pantheon of aesthetic values as do the Greek ideals of beauty and perfection in the West." Andrew Juniper claims, "if an object or expression can bring about, within us, a sense of serene melancholy and a spiritual longing, then that object could be said to be wabi sabi."
Hey, Freddie -- glad to see you seem to be doing well these days! Keep in touch.
Did you see the Dog?
I've never seen Black Dog, though I get up there a couple times a year. Kind of relieved, I'd be freaked out if I saw him.
