Something I call beautiful

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder – literal meaning is the perception of beauty is subjective.

Origin – This saying first appeared in the 3rd century BC in Greek. It didn’t appear in its current form in print until the 19th century, but in the meantime, there were various written forms that expressed much the same thought. In 1588, the English dramatist John Lyly, in his Euphues and his England, wrote:

…as neere is Fancie to Beautie, as the pricke to the Rose, as the stalke to the rynde, as the earth to the roote. (Wikipedia)

Out of curiosity, I was wondering how people categorize beauty on their own. So, to make a twist out of something ordinary, I asked random people to know their opinion on these questions.

What`s your own definition of beauty? What are the things you associate beauty with?

After asking them all the queries, I found out that most of the people I interviewed have something in common. The majority associate beauty with nature. Like mountains, rivers, lakes, beaches, the sky, and so on. Not only that, but some define beauty as something that can’t be seen with our naked eye. One person even considered beauty like Zen, emphasizing the value of meditation and the state of being at peace with oneself is something magnificent.

Speaking of beauty, there are three things in Japan I find indescribably pleasing not only to my eyes but also to my other senses.

1. Nature – Nature is defined as the natural Earth and the things on it, or the essence of a person or thing. The trees, forests, birds, and animals are all an example of nature. (Wikipedia)

Actually, I haven`t been to many places in Japan, but I can imagine how beautiful nature is in this country.Getting a glimpse of the parks and temples within reach made me momentarily speechless.

2. Cafes – Cafe culture is so huge in Japan and it’s obvious that you will find some very unique cafes and some of them are super cute and pretty. I think Japanese people love to bring attention to details in all aspects of their lives.

There are many cafes in my country as well, however, here in Japan, the variety is limitless.

3.Food – I think Japanese people’s love for design also extends to food.

The way food looks on the plate in Japan is what tempts our eyes and makes you want to taste it. It is just as true with food presentation and how the elements are arranged on the plate. So yes, how food is being presented is such a beauty.

Sushi

To conclude, beauty for me can be in plain things. From nature, cafes, food and so forth. Beauty can be found everywhere. Looking at things in different perspective have made me see that even the simplest, and unlikely things can be beautiful and the points I indicated above are just some of the things I call beautiful. Now, it’s your turn!
