I'm thinking about all the creatives out there....
I don't believe in perfection. I don't believe it's achievable or interesting. I don't believe I should spend my time doing one perfect thing.
This fantasy of perfection that we conjure up is often used to disempower ourselves.I think that a big block to our creativity is the fear that our work,
even in it's initial stages, has to meet the standards of other completed artworks - paintings, gallery shows, novels, you name it.
This is not how work is actually made,
it doesn't arrive completed or ready packaged like a microwaved meal
