I changed up my ways thanks to an online housekeeping column, written by Marla Cilley, which I started to read when I sunk to the bottom of the barrel of overwhelment by the act of single-mothering three children.
Marla's advice was that it was better to take a lick at a snake than to sit there in paralysis and allow oneself to be bitten.
This piece is about taking a lick at the snake, and about the smoke and mirrors of the details of perfectionism.
Hope you enjoy. And thanks, as always, for listening.

This collage, "Blind Perfectionist," was given a Daily Deviation Award on 9-5-2012 at the site where I keep my gallery (http://
This is what the site says about the Daily Deviation choice process:
"The Daily Deviation is a daily feature chosen from the galleries here on deviantART. A small assortment of submissions are chosen each day by a select group of staff/volunteer members who wish to showcase an image which they found impressive or otherwise interesting enough to deserve being brought to the attention of the community-at-large."
I am honored by the recognition and deeply grateful.
