"Perfection is the Opposite of Done"

I have been thinking about kicking off my blog for quite some time now. But being the perfectionist-in-remission that I am, I did not want to get started until I had thought through the perfect design, focus and content for the blog. "Not until I had the perfect recipe for the grand opening :-) . Surely not until I built a light box for taking pictures of these perfect dishes or objects!"

Well, I gave all that up, as you can see. An elderly gentleman that I used to work with once mentioned these words " Perfection is the opposite of done". And it resonated with me.
Life is full of imperfections , and so am I. It would be a pity to put life, or anything else for that matter, on hold waiting for the perfect something. With that thought, I got off to write my first post.

My hope for this blog is that it will be a reflection of me, my interests and priorities at that time.
Since Cooking and Photography are areas I am deeply interested in, I expect a bulk of my posts to lean that way. At the same time, I am a working woman and a mother of an adorable 8 month old - I am preoccupied, as many of us are, with issues as diverse as trying to achieve the evasive work-life balance to ensuring the baby gets in some veggies without spitting up.
Hence, in conclusion, I don't intend to have a strong focus area for this blog - I think it will swing between areas depending on the time of the day.

My only hope here is that I will get an opportunity to interact with people from different walks of life, share thoughts, make a few fantastic friends and learn a LOT!

And Someday down the line, I'll work on the nearly perfect design. Just not Today.
