Perfect Imperfection; National Photo Month, Day 19

Aging is all about perspective. When I look in the mirror each morning, my attitude toward aging just isn't that positive.

But, take a lovely garden finial such as this one, and aging takes on a whole new perspective.

I found this concrete finial at an estate sale. I imagine it was still sitting there, lonely and overlooked, because it had a wounded foot and was cloaked in moss on one side. For some, those characteristics might have been viewed as flaws. Really?

I don't think so! To me, chips and moss are beauty marks.

Make it a great day!


  1. Well said, the finial is beautiful. These days I feel as if I have moss growing on me and a few chips, too.

  2. That is just beautiful. Such a nice post.

    Thanks so much for sharing on SOS!!
