RE: THE POINT OF CREATION IN LIGHT OF EXPECTED IMPERFECTION.
I’m running around here cleaning shit up and I keep thinking to myself, what if I do put this book together and edit it and all that and people don’t like all of it. What if only parts of the book are good and the rest is junk? It really makes me wonder whether I want to put myself through that, but then I thought, I like a lot of musicians and authors, but I only like pieces and parts of each of their entire bodies of work. So now, I’m thinking it’s really gonna be okay if people don’t like every paragraph I write, it doesn’t really matter if every paragraph is beautifully crafted and ripe with meaning…it just doesn’t have to be perfect. It doesn’t have to be perfect and what’s more, oftentimes it’s the imperfection in an object that ends up making it so perfect, so beautiful in the first place. So now I’m back on track and feel much better.
