Shibui (shi-BOO-ee): The subtle beauty of aging. Source: Japanese.

It is believed that half the languages spoken on our planet will be extinct by 2100. When a language dies, we lose more than a point of view; we lose traditions that connect people to place – and to each other. We lose deep cultural wisdom: things like myths and fairy tales, knowledge of plants and animals, humor, prayers, and recipes.
