Squiggles, the Second

This picture is a bit of a mistake, but I like it just the same. One of the things I want to focus on in my 2011 "happiness project" is overcoming perfectionism for the sake of creativity, art, beauty, peace of mind, etc. Sometimes, my attention to detail and my commitment to doing better — to being the best — can be a useful and wonderful asset, but I realize that it's unhealthy and unwise to live under that sort of pressure all the time. I don't know exactly what all of my goals will be for the year or how I will keep myself accountable or why I feel the sudden urge to stretch myself, nor do I want to figure that out from a hotel room in Kentucky (as gorgeous and inspirational as it might be). So until then, I will mull over this simple thought and see where it takes me:

I am not perfect, and I can't wait to see what I can do because of that.

Awesome thought. I love this post.

Something you'll notice is how much your hands move whenever you're taking a picture. You may not notice it, but man. It shows up in pictures.

That said, this is a pretty neat mistake. Most of the time, those are the best ones.

In any event, on a more philosophical note, I think eschewing perfectionism for the sake of art is an excellent pursuit. Best of luck!

Art for art's sake. Or something.
