This week’s video story: Sometimes flawed can be more perfect than perfection.
This is one of my favorite Secrets of Adulthood, and I tell another story about the same idea, about the ballet and wabi-sabi and Glenn Gould. (Wow, that’s an odd combination, now that I think of it.)
That idea is related to another story, about another Secret of Adulthood that my mother told me, right before my wedding: Sometimes the things that go wrong make the best memories.
The story that I tell comes from Dear Genius: The Letters of Ursula Nordstrom.
What do you think? Have you seen any examples where flawed was more perfect than perfection?
