Impermanent and Imperfect

True happiness is always a moment. – Liviu Rebreanu

Recently, Open Culture posted a 4-minute video called Wabi-Sabi: A Handful of Memories from Traditional Japan. This was an amazing coincidence in my mind, since a few days previous, I’d featured the Japanese art of kintsukuroi in To Repair with Gold. The video, by Spanish filmmaker Cristóbal Vila, is breathtakingly beautiful but, as stunning as these images are, they’re also a reminder that natural beauty is impermanent and imperfect.

As each of us begin our personal journey of reinvention, let’s not forget that we, too, are imperfect beings. We’ll make mistakes, we may even fail, and whatever we do create will surely end one day, but by reaching for our dreams, we create our moments.
