Here is a model of the good, the bad, and the ugly that I drew tonight on a whim:

I don't have the passion or patience to be an arteest, but I can draw geometric shapes in understandable combinations. The highly symbolic approach usually works a little better in the form of poetry; in other words, I think an explanation of this dynamic doodle is in order:

Perfection. It's an elusive ideal, but that doesn't diminish its effect on everything and everyone in this world. As a disillusioned perfectionist in a family of perfectionists, I should know.

For the sake of argument, I'm going to put forth the following theory: Everyone is looking for perfection.

Exhibit A: Watch a wide selection of TV and/or movies. Look at the covers (just the covers) of the tabloid magazines in the grocery store. Follow some celebrities on social...

Tonight I was out alternately jogging and walking. When I reached a straight, flat road (much of my usual course involves hills), I ran.

You know you've written enough, not once you've reached a certain word count, but once you've said everything you need to say.

You know you've eaten enough, not once your plate or the table are empty, but once you are no longer hungry.
