This is the Merriam-Webster definition. When I think of sophistication, I imagine someone with beautiful clothes who is well-versed in many topics, articulate, knowledgable about good food and drink, and deeply kindness and generous.
Now I imagine someone unattached to physical things, who lives in small spaces that are spare but inviting. A lack of neediness. Lightness. Contentment. Cultured, knowledgable, and subtle. More than anything, contented.
What is your ultimate sophistication? Does simplicity fit?
