“Imperfection is beauty,

madness is genius

and it’s better to be

absolutely ridiculous

than absolutely boring.”

~ Marilyn Monroe


{I’ll pick absolutely ridiculous, beautiful imperfection over boring every single time.}

    Brilliant life, but not sure one I'd turn to for wisdom on happiness. ~ Waylon

  2. On happiness, no. I think some of the things she is quoted as saying she was trying to get through to herself. Such a tragic life. Still love the quote though.

    tee hee 🙂 i too gave up on knitting for several years and only recently have picked it back up. i find it very meditative (though not really a replacement for actual meditation, which i should do more often 🙂 as for knitting, youtube videos are KEY and most importantly, embracing "frogging"…what they call in the knitting world the act of ripping out rows and rows of work, even entire pieces……just rip it out, rip it, rip it, ribbit….get it? haha, crazy knitting lingo 🙂 its actually a great exercise in non-attachment 🙂 believe me, you get really attached to something you've spent 12+ hours on, only to tear it up? no thanks, but once you embrace the "frog" its all good. anywho, all the best on your journeys, knitting and otherwise 😛
