A Perfect Mess

The boy kind of loves Keri Smith and her Corita Kent-meets-contemporary approach to a creative life.

Even when it throws his penchant for avoiding mistakes in a tailspin.

IMG_2851Dude saw this at a bookstore today and jumped with a “This is AWESOME.”  And we weren’t home five minutes before he was curled up with Mess, a book with the following three rules:

  1. Do not try to make something beautiful.
  2. Do not think too much. (There is no “wrong.”)
  3. Continue under all circumstances.


Looks like Ms. Smith has the gift of building a safe space for even the most reticent among us to get a little crazy. Crazy in a great way.
