A Curious Piece at the Imaginative Conservative

Down Home American Zen by Stephen Masty

The author recommends "Japanese aesthetics, particularly the portions derived from Zen Buddhism and specifically at what is called wabi-sabi" for American cultural conservatives.

Can the beauty of profane items also remind us of God?

I am reminded that this week there was this piece on the connection between the Japanese tea ceremony and Catholicism over at Crisis.
