Letting go of imperfection

Thouigh I measured the width of candles, and then used a calculator to figure shrinkage, then tried to make the cups the right size, they were too large! So I tried to sell this nice candlestand this way, using various things to hold the candles in place...but if it's not perfect, why keep apologizing?

So it had the hammer treatment today.  Time to let go of a nice idea which I spent hours on, and it actually looked pretty nice...but why keep it around if it's not that useable?  Indeed.  There are more things waiting to be made, to be used, to be treasured.  This isn't what I intended, so it is destroyed.

Today's quote:

An optimist isn't necessarily a blithe, sappy whistler in the dark. To be hopeful in bad times is not just foolishly romantic... If we remember those times and places where people have behaved magnificently, this gives us energy to act, and at least the possibility of sending this spinning top of a world in a different direction.
Howard Zinn
