Found again

Worked on this again even though I said I wouldn’t. Wish I hadn’t.

There’s a threshold where the initial, spontaneous reaction/response turns into nitpicking and needless questions that lead to defining everything. The problem with that is that I’m seeing beauty in something and it catches my eye, but then, I overwork it and stop seeing what attracted me and start seeing nothing but flaws. I can find beauty in “nothing” (or a pile of garbage) but with too much information I no longer paint the beauty and end up describing the nothing. The more I paint the more I want to focus on just that beauty and omit everything else that is superfluous.
