A Little Happier: Sometimes, Flawed Can Be More Perfect Than Perfection

April 11th, 2016

Episode 246 of 397 episodes

This is one of my favorite Secrets of Adulthood: Sometimes, flawed can be more perfect than perfection. I love the humming that’s audible in this recording of Glenn Gould’s performance. For me, the “flaw” of the humming makes the music more beautiful. What do you think — agree, disagree? If you’re interested in this idea, it also relates to the haunting Japanese concept of wabi-sabi–-the beauty of “the imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete.” I hope you’re enjoying the new mini-episodes. I love doing them. Want to get in touch?
