    Hi Carrie,

    I just found your blog in which you mentioned hearing the song “Japanese Bowls” in Garrison Keillor’s show. I love that song too and I did a little research. It turns out that it was originally sung by Peter Mayer. The sentiments expressed in this song express very well the Japanese Zen aesthetics of “wabi sabi.

    Best regards,

    Ken Leong
