The Complaints of Imperfection

It is only imperfection that
complains of what is imperfect.

The more perfect we are,
the more gentle and quiet
we become toward the
defects of others.

Joseph Addison

Of Note: This elegant sunflower from my garden,, though perfect from a distance, has its imperfections when viewed up close. Ancient wisdom has it that all forms on the physical plane are imperfect, and we are getting closer to Reality when we begin to comprehend that fact. Mr. Addison and the Dalai Lama should talk.

Today's Weather Report: Partly cloudy with showers looming. At this very moment the sun has peeked through and is casting dancing shadows on the ground. The temps in the high 70's are close to perfection.
