Perfectly Imperfect vs Imperfectly Perfect

There is no such thing as perfect…

Yet we strive for it, believe in it, crave it…

You are  imperfect and it looks perfectly beautiful on you.

Sing with me…dance with me…the words will always find

an imperfect moment to make us feel momentarily perfect.

Imperfectly Perfect Music

But, the reality is…

It is called, “Wabi-sabi“…

“Wabi-sabi is a way of seeing the world that is at the heart of Japanese culture. It finds beauty and harmony in what is simple, imperfect, modest, natural, and mysterious. It can be a little dark, but it is also warm and comfortable. It may be best understood as a feeling, rather than as an idea.” – Mark Reibstein and Ed Young

    ooh – good take on wabi-sabi!

    Although I do think the woman’s lover, at the beginning of the Pink song, should’ve taken better care that his lover enjoyed herself!
