Less Than Perfect

Perfection is not all it’s cracked up to be. Life is full of flaws, some major, some minor. But it is those flaws that define a person or object, and give character and depth. For me, imperfection is always more intriguing. From grooming to gardening and everything in between, purposely leaving a few “loose ends” is attractive and eye-catching.

‘Near perfection’ gives items a polished but still “natural” look. It suggests that, while ample care was given, there are more important things to attend to, other ways to fill the time than to strive for a perfect balance. Anything worth doing is worth doing just short of flawless.
