Abstract

An edited reader and guide to the wabi-sabi route, which dwells with the transient, incomplete, and unnoticed.

Wabi-sabi map

This route allows you to wander and observe. Watching, abiding, it’s a chance to defer the temptation to intervene, and let things unfold. An invitation to seek out places of enchantment and seclusion, it can support reflection on transitions, liminality, and the often neglected art of bringing things to an end.
