Enough With the Worship of Perfection!

    Perfection is a ballerina balancing on one toe of her ballet slipper on the point of a pyramid. How long can she hold that pose and why is perfection a more credible state? I ask this from  the view point of someone who has undermined myself by being self hypercritical, surely a tactic that undermines energy and confidence. Often I come upon an old piece of jewelry that I have made  that I felt missed my goal. Holding that piece I realize that it was a step toward a design that was beyond my original idea. Now, as I expand my creativity into new directions I wish to validate all honest effort.

Agree agree agree, Leslie! I learn more from my mistakes than from the perfect things.

BTW, the sweet owners of Coveted Yarn recognized my C-pin of yours when I stopped by there a couple of weeks ago (we were in Boston for a couple of days). Sorry to have missed you during the yarn crawl. Next time :)
