My Photograph of Kate Nadeau's Kitchen Pubished in Book "Simply Imperfect"

 Simply Imperfect: Revisiting the Wabi-Sabi House

 

Simply Imperfect: Revisiting the Wabi-Sabi House is about appreciating the simple and letting go of the superficial – the perfect antidote for a society in recovery from a decades-long consumerist binge. Far more than home décor, wabi-sabi is a state of mind: living modestly in the moment, stripping away the unnecessary, finding satisfaction in everyday things. Simply Imperfect recounts wabi-sabi’s rich history, tracing it from its Zen Buddhist roots through to the present day.

Have you heard of Il Volo Yet? Don't worry...you will.

Il Volo Album

When these three teenagers appeared on the Italian talent show “Ti Lascio Una Canzone” in 2009, they swept the competition with their amazing talents. They preformed a verion of “O Sole Mio” that was perfection and launched them into what will no doubt be a long career.

The group is made up of Piero Barone, Ignazio Boschetto, and Gianluca Ginoble. All three young tenors  have made their mission clear. “We want to share our love for this music with people all over the world, including kids our own age.” That they say “would be our dream come true.” (originally from their website www.ilvolomusic.com)
