via imperfection

i only arrived at the rangy thought that was and will be the american way by way of imperfection.

by way of this quote:

“In a mile you’ll be feeling fine.” ~ citizen cope

and that previously twitted:

“As machines become more and more efficient and perfect, so it will become clear that imperfection is the greatness of man.” ~ Ernst Fischer

and these here:

“I cling to my imperfection, as the very essence of my being.” ~ Anatole France (Source: The Garden of Epicurus, 1894, via Gaia.com)

“Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius, and it is better to absolutely ridiculus than absolutely boring.” ~ Marilyn Monroe (1926 – 1962) also from Gaia.com, and i do not know to whom to attribute those typos to.

and by way of the thought of leaving one mistake. as in sand painting. i don’t know much about it, and when i tried to search, all the books were by google, and i think you get three pages before you get cut off, but the concept was this:

native american sand painting takes hours and days, and at the end, when it was finished the painter would reach in and make one mistake.

i think about this alot
