wabi sabi 侘 寂


“wabi ” is the beauty of imperfection. “sabi” is the quality of age, deterioration and the passage of time.

侘 寂   A beauty of things imperfect , impermanent and incomplete..

A nice faded ripped off jeans can be a wabi sabi item or your grandmother rocking chair but
“Time is kind to things, but unkind to man.” so why fight for the inevitable, understand n and appreciate it with grace and equanimity.

you can’t get rich overnight, it takes work. same thing applies to a great pair of worn in jeans it takes work and time spent. it’s a philosophy and a way of life. it requires passion.
I always say that fashion can be bought, style can not!!!

Relax… let your clothes be clothes and age naturally.

but wearing  grossly an unwashed  button flies denim  for century is just plain sick . 

No-one really gives a fuck about the shirt or trousers you wear as long as they fit well, are well pressed, and clean  .Just Spend some money on a decent pair of shoes. 🙂


Quantitiative easing QE


Quantitative easing (QE) is a monetary policy used by central banks to stimulate the economy when standard monetary policy has become ineffective.

QE is aimed at stimulating economic activity, such as increasing consumer spending

One of the main tools they have to control growth is raising or lowering interest rates. Lower interest rates encourage people or companies to spend money, rather than save.
But when interest rates are almost at zero, central banks need to adopt different tactics – such as pumping money directly into the financial system.
This process is known as quantitative easing or QE.

sukajan deviant Japanese art?


Namitatsu (波達).  I think I own every designed shirt they’ve ever made. Roughly translated the Company name would mean: People of the Wave. Their motto (and label on most clothing items) is:

love about the motto though is the deeper meaning it conveys…it doesn’t have to directly apply to surfing per se, but to be active and in control; to wit: To be in charge of the path you take in life (i.e where you’ll surf on the wave-of-life and what path along it’s face you’ll take)
