Feng shui or wabi sabi?

I came across a video from Arizona Highways TV today. It’s got cowboy humorist Baxter Black talking about Benson, Arizona, which is about 60 miles from Tucson in the heart of, you guessed it, Cochise County!

He talks about how wabi-sabi is the concept of beauty in imperfection (vs. feng shui, which is how everything needs to be placed “just so”). Amazing to hear a cowboy, a “regular” guy, talk about these trendy concepts. Maybe Mr. Black learned about them on a visit to the Singing Wind Bookshop, located on a nearby working ranch. Or maybe it was on his many travels. The video surely shows that he’s curious and open to new ideas and concepts. It’s also evident that he loves this part of the West.

Take Baxter’s advice and look at the rugged beauty of Benson and the rest of Cochise County!
