As long as you love it, it's going to work.
A simple logic and great reminder for me never to get away from the basics of who I am or what I see beauty in. Maybe the first time she spoke the words, she didn't intend for me to take it to heart in ALL areas of my creative perspectives ... but I have.
Again, as any time I think deeply about inspiration, creation, or beauty my thoughts are turned to our Creator, God. My God loves everything that is in existence around us, regardless of it's flaws, nics, or scratches. And somehow, and in someway, if you take a look around, all that has been created just seems to "work" together.
There is not one shade of green that is exactly the same if you look at a mountainside pixeled with trees. The fact that combinations of different instruments can make many stylings of music that soothe and sing to us. When words and textures that have never been integrated together are mixed and produced, some label the phenomenon as "original" with an instantaneous appreciation. An instance where two opposite personalities attract, that make for a successful marriage...wonderful parents...
How does it all work together when it's not perfect or matching? Simply ... because of His love for us.
