Perfectly Imperfect

There are some things we could argue that are
simply perfect. A sunset is perfect or snuggled
around a cosy fire, while looking up at the night
sky, mesmerised by the beauty of the vast, expansive
universe is perfect. You wouldn’t sit there and think to

and how their dollars should be utilised. Continue reading
