  1. Ah, grasshopper. You have learned the ancient Japanese concept of wabi-sabi. The pleasing aesthetic qualities of an object are enhanced by asymmetry and imperfection.
    I have a feeling that the true beauty created that day lies in the happy memory of a child, not in the flawless (and meaningless) execution of an impermanent—and still tasty— cookie. Kudos!
