Musubi means a knot in Japanese. It also means the connections and bonds between people.
In Shintoism, Japan’s ancient religion, musubi is the power of becoming or creation.
Physically, musubi means to tie something, such as tying the obi sash on a kimono.
O-musubi is a handmade rice ball that my obāchan (grandma) used to make for me when we visited Japan.
Musubi is the invisible thread that ties family, friends and true love together; the threads of fate that also tie me to you.
