Perfection... Maybe Not.

This morning I heard an interesting comment about opera singers on NPR. The commentator said that these days, performers are all striving to get every detail right - to be perfect. He said that if you go to an opera, you won't get a bad performance. But you won't get an outstanding one either.

The difference between excellence and beauty comes only when we let go of perfection.
