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.

The will and won’t of leave…

I am Pondering the word leave with Brenda at BYG Adventures

tux

I will  leave home  after making sure Teddy has a full bowl of food
so he won’t eat the leaves of my houseplants.

I will always clear off my desk before leaving work
so I won’t leave anything important undone.

I will always ask for a leave from work
so I won’t be absent without leave.

My retirement plan:
I will leave this life once I have spent every penny I have
and I won’t leave anything for anyone to inherit.

Pondering the watch…

Today I am taking part in a blog hop that
Brenda at BYG Adventures hosts.
In this hop she asks us to

Ponder

This week we are to ponder the word watch.
So, here I go a pondering.

think

I have thought about this before so it isn’t a new pondering.
Why are watches called watches?
Shouldn’t they be called little clocks?  Or portable clocks?

When I went to Wikipedia to find out about watches I learned they are “watches”:
1) from an Old English word “woecce” that means watchman.
2) sailors called them watches because they used them to
keep track of the time of their “watches”.

Okay, I guess those explanations make some sense.

But why are pocket watches called pocket watches?
Why aren’t they pocket clocks?
And why are wrist watches called wrist watches?
Seems to me they should be called wrist clocks.

Now that wrist watches can do everything imaginable I think they should be called
wrist computers.

So there is my pondering for today.

Wander on over and see what is being pondered.
