As Leonard sang in Anthem:
"Ring the bells that still can ring
Forget your perfect offering
There is a crack, a crack in everything
That's how the light gets in."
Perfection is uncomfortable and doesn't get you anyplace new; broken things are an entryway for change. I tore open the rim on this one and I think the rip is like an invitation to try something unexpected. As my friend Scott Siegler put it, "The deep end is where all the cool shit happens, the shallow end is for beginners."
