One rule for living right I didn’t mention, mostly because I couldn’t find an appropriately illustrative song: recognize you’ll never be perfect, but never give up trying.
Kokoro is a case in point.
One could certainly forgive her if she stopped her pursuit of the perfect body curl. She is, after all, a lady of a certain age–arguably a certain age and a half–and her curl has been developed with daily practice.
And yet, it’s still not quite perfect.
Note the tail: it’s neither aligned with the feet or crossed over them to parallel the upper ear. Any judge would agree it’s a quarter-point deduction.
So, she continues to practice. This particular practice session lasted a good three hours.
One can only admire her dedication to her craft. And give her pettings when she wakes up.
