Now that the new year is adequately broken in, I can’t help but think how flawed some things are… Beautiful, but nevertheless flawed. Lately, I’ve been taking much care to be punctual, not to forget or lose anything, to take good care of my possessions, to always fold my clothes at night, to work hard, to always be polite and…
