Perfection

Perfect1There is a measure for everything in the world, everything but perfection. Perfection is one of those words much like the word Love we tend to use too loosely until it loses the true meaning. There is a measure for everything in the world, but perfection. We look at something we admire a great deal (perhaps a splendid work of art) and call it perfection.

An Epic Escape

Every now and then you cross paths with someone who leaves a lasting impression. This is the story of such a person, this person and I crossed paths and this is his story I hope you enjoy it as much as I d0.
