Reflecting on the Importance of Imperfection

It’s hard to believe now, but it must have rained last week. That’s when I snapped this photograph of/in a puddle on the sidewalk in front of MSOE’s Campus Center.

This recurring puddle has been a remarkably fertile source of photos for me, including this one of the Plaza East office building as raindrops were just starting to fall again . . .

. . . and this one of the Grohmann Museum, a favorite that wound up in the alumni art exhibition celebrating my undergraduate school’s fiftieth anniversary.

Where will I turn to for inspiration once the city someday repaves and improves this sidewalk’s drainage?

P.S. ~ Thank you to my friend and fellow blogger Karen Spivey for her poem/post today that got me thinking about how negatives may actually be positive forces in our lives 🙂

    The one puddle you keep coming back to for a new way to look at the world. Interesting.
