On wabi-sabi distortions and kimonos

" Contrary to the Romantic belief that we each settle naturally on a fitting idea of beauty, it seems that our visual and emotional faculties in fact need constant external guidance to help them decide what they should take note of and appreciate. 'Voodle' is the word we have assigned to the force that assists us in identifying which of our many sensations we should focus on and apportion value to.”

"My experience is what I agree to attend to. Only those items which I notice shape my mind…." Indeed, quotes Sam Renseiw, while having paraphrased de Botton further up on this post, regarding the matter of re-viewing chopped-up kimono footage from last summer, refashioned wabi-sabi like into a parachuted, late docu-voodle.
