MONO NO AWARE
[noun]
(物の哀れ), literally “the pathos of things”, also translated as “an empathy toward things”, or “a sensitivity to ephemera” - a Japanese term for the awareness of impermanence, or transience of things, and both a transient gentle sadness (or wistfulness) at their passing as well as a longer, deeper gentle sadness about this state being the reality of life.
Etymology: coined in the 18th century by the Edo period Japanese cultural scholar Motoori Norinaga. The phrase is derived from the Japanese word mono, which means “thing”, and aware, which was a Heian period expression of measured surprise (similar to “ah” or “oh”), translating roughly as “pathos”, “poignancy”, “deep feeling”, “sensitivity”, or “awareness”. Thus, mono no aware has frequently been translated as “the ‘ahh-ness’ of things”, life, and love. Content source.

THIS IS VERY ACCURATE

THIS IS VERY BEAUTIFUL

Is this accurate? Is this what it’s actually like to not be able to see clearly?

yes

This is very accurate and beautiful. And yes it is what it’s like. When you have poor vision getting glasses is like turning everything to High Definition. Before I had glasses I did not know that is was supposed to be able to see individual leaves on trees.

Carol Carter  is a contemporary watercolor artist based out of St Louis, MO. She is such a prolific painter that it proved nearly impossible to select just seventeen images to feature out of the hundreds documented throughout her website. Her subject matter is incredibly varied, ranging from swimmers, nudes, flora and fauna, to interiors and landscapes of the Everglades and Italy. In spite of painting such a vast range of subject matter, her work remains consistent with her personal style; painting with an electric color palette, she saturates values of light and dark with a brilliant range of unpredictable color that often takes on the effect of solarization via
