Junk shelves, random boxes, and “to do” lists are subtle ways to keep us organized by deferring the eventualities of cleaning. If pursuing perfection paralyzes progress, getting around to completing these cleaning tasks should just be a matter of time and interest, right? Throughout my moving process, I’ve discarded anything that doesn’t enrich my life, with some lingering questions: How many of this item’s collection do I want to keep? All or none? Maybe one?
If you have to start somewhere, when do the feedback floodgates open to allow for constructive criticism? Should polite proposals remain off limits until after an absolute amount of practice posts, pictures, or performances? Is it unfair to compare performers of amateur and mature skill? I appreciate the inclusivity of the Seattle Video Game Orchestra and Choir and I’m always inspired by anyone attempting to broaden taste. I just think some improvement could reliably impress.
