A Wabi Sabi Life

A Wabi Sabi Life

By Katharine Weinmann, MSW

As a lover of an evocative poem, a new impression gleaned from travel, and simple everyday noticings, here I chronicle the beauty in my imperfect, sometimes broken, mostly well-lived and loved life.
Here, I weave word and image to remind myself and hopefully inspire you to slow down, to appreciate and allow life to unfold in all its mess and mystery, with all its grit and glory.
Here, you are welcome.

I Worried - a poem by Mary Oliver
I Worried - a poem by Mary Oliver
Every Friday in my blog, A Wabi Sabi Life, I like to feature a poem from a favourite or lesser known poet, together with one of my photos. Today I read Mary Oliver's "I Worry." Timely still, given the impacts felt by the pandemic, and what it now means to "re-open" and "re-enter" society after a year and a half of social isolation.

The Coming of Spring
The Coming of Spring
Spring has officially arrived! We've enjoyed a run of sunshine and warm weather, melting much of the snow and bringing forth pussy willows. But here in Canadian the prairies, we snow will come again. This episode features a poem I wrote last year, reminding me of the spring's early ways. This episode is also available as a blog post: http://awabisabilife.ca/2020/03/06/the-coming-of-march/

Since publishing my latest blog, A Wabi Sabi Life, and now this podcast, people have asked "What does Wabi Sabi mean?" This is the short story I wrote to explain how Wabi Sabi showed up in my life (and on my forearm as a tattoo!)
