All of us
are imperfect-
every one
some more than others
but every one
is flawed

All of us
and in joining up
knowing what we know
and being what we are
we become more able
to create perfection

Like the architect
and engineer
inspired to build

Like the designer
and artist
driven to create

Like the poet
compelled to dream

Like the cook
pleased to feed a hungry family

We bring our best to the table.
