Boomer Ramblings (Perfection)

It seems to be a general consensus that there is no such thing as perfection. I know, because I tell people that all the time. It is stated in lines such as “nobody’s perfect”, or, “in the perfect world.” Would we have these lines  if things were perfect? I think not,  How about a couple of quotes for you: “The essence of man is imperfection” Norman Cousins. “His only fault is that he has no fault” Pliny, the Younger. Wow! that sounds like even if you are perfect you are boring. I gotta tell you if you are boring life isn’t perfect.

I could go on, but too many quotes would make for an imperfect blog. Which, by the way I have started three times….er so far….Let’s face it we all have our flaws. for instance, suppose you meet someone who seems to be perfect, they have the looks, the brains, the wit, you know, they are probably a slob. Maybe they have the looks and they are neat as all hell but they ain’t too bright.

How can we expect perfection out of ourselves when, according to some, “God isn’t perfect he can’t even make two mountain ranges the same”.  A. I am pretty sure he planned it that way.

B. If every mountain, or even the trees were the same it would be pointless wanting to climb different ones.  C. I am not talking about nature anyway, I am supposed to be talking about people.

It looks as if I imperfectly got off track there. Anyway, as I was saying, we are not perfect. As I feel this can never be remedied, it should be a goal we all set for ourselves.  We should always strive for perfection, and even if we do not achieve it, we will be better for trying.


About Bigboomer

Hello, first of all I would like to thank you for visiting my blogsite. I am going to tell you a little about me. My name is Ray, I started writing back in high school. Every once in a while I would come up with a few ideas and would write them down. Most of which became poems others became short stories. Some of my inspirations are of the heart, some of them come from the thoughts of the day. You will see, as you browse threw my site my poetry is about as diverse as you can get. I hope that as you read them some will have you thinking of love, while others will make you feel sorrow. I would like some of them to set you off to an adventure. Finally, I have some poems that may make you hungry. I do have some inspirations that just plane turn into ramblings or rants as, if you read in here, you will see. I have managed to get two books published so far, the first one is titled Pathways, it may be found at xlibris.com/RayBohdan.html. there you can view a couple of excerpts form the book. The second book is Mingling Hues of My Mind it is at publish America A little bit more about me. I am fifty-one years old I have three children, Rainney, Elisa, and Anthony and two well, actually, three grandchildren Raeanne Marie, Graycee, and Amaya. I guess I could go on, but then I am afraid this will come out sounding like a dating profile. Part of my site will be dedicated to my poetry, I plan to break it down into different sections and organize it by type/style. Another section of this site will be dedicated to my blog it will be about my rants/thoughts of the day. These will vary from political, to personal, to comical. I will talk about most anything and everything that I feel may be of interest to someone. I also will devote a section to some of my favorite recipes with hints on how to capture his/her heart by winning their stomach. My favorite foods are Italian and Mexican, but this section will not be limited to those two types. I do believe however, that the most important part of my site will be the dedication pages. These will be to memorialize special loved ones and friends, as well as thank those that have made purchases of my afore-mentioned book. This is exactly what you think it is. A way for me to sell my self as a writer. Publicly get my words and thoughts out into the world. Please believe me when I say that this in no way demeans or diminishes my passions for the people and the love of which I have written, and will continue to write. I trust that once you read my poems you will feel the love i have felt, the pains I have been through, and the joys of life itself. Once again I thank you for stopping by please enjoy.
