Wabi Sabi …

I am always transfixed by my visitor’s smirk that often means he has an insight into the process of life! His Wednesday visits leave me with the urge to utter profanities but compunction wins over and I resist the twist to derail these profound moments of genuine Wabi Sabi …

For the impermanent transient nature of all is what we need to understand in order to let go!

Wasabi is the hot Korean paste I immediately thought of when I saw this challenge, so thanks for teaching me a interesting new word!
