Monday musings…

There is a kind of beauty in imperfection.
Conrad Hall


I like this quote because I believe there is no beauty in perfection.
Actually, I am not sure there is such a thing as perfection in this world we live in.

There is great beauty in nature, but it is not necessarily perfect. Storms, earthquakes, tsunamis, droughts, any natural disaster brings imperfection to what may have seemed perfect.

Animals, birds, reptiles, fish, and even insects have an attractiveness to them, though it may be a bit strange. We may find them interesting and often lovely, but there are things in their nature that we find difficult to see as perfect.

And people! How many perfect people do you know, or even know of? There may be some who are pretty close to perfect in what we consider beautiful, but is there really perfection in the physical aspect of human beings? As for the intellectual and emotional parts and pieces of people; how can there be perfection when those things are constantly changing? Customs, habits, dispositions, quirks, attitudes, likes, dislikes; those things are different for everyone. How can perfection be defined or found?

As I said in the beginning of this…I don’t believe there is beauty in perfection.
If every living thing, in this world, was without any faults or flaws
would that be perfect or incredibly boring?

Heaven, I am told is perfect, but I have never been there.
I am fine not knowing for now.
