Alicia invites us to marvel in “komorebi” — and the magic that comes of celebrating nature.
– KEYS SOULCARE
“Learned the Japanese word komorebi, meaning the sunshine filtering through tree leaves. There’s no equivalent word in English. How BEAUTIFUL to have a word for this natural magic? What other words am I missing out on?! Sending you sunshine & magic.” — Alicia Keys
From the cleansing lull of a spring rainstorm to the solace of freshly fallen snow, one thing’s for certain: when it comes to natural wonder, nature’s got no rival. We’re taking a cue from Alicia’s tweet and basking in the glow of learning something new and finding the bliss in our everyday lives.
“Komorebi” — one of many Japanese words dedicated to ideas universal and ephemeral — is evidence that one instance of natural beauty is worth a thousand words. (Or, in this case, its very own.)
We can examine, mimic, and (in our case) bottle nature, but there’s nothing like getting to know it up close and from every possible angle.
Komorebi and otherwise.
When’s the last time the everyday took your breath away?
