Some days there is so much stuff in your head that you can not effectively blog. Blogging requires picking out some detail and focusing on it. Right now my head is filled with stuff I need to do, open source software pros and cons and topped off with a difficult day of interactive programming.

Sometimes I feel like a perfectionist. I want things to be flawless. Something Katie said struck a chord with me and is making me paranoid.

Portion of a poem by Robert Burns, To a Louse.

O, wad some Power the giftie gie us
To see oursels as others see us!
It wad frae monie a blunder free us
An’ foolish notion:
What airs in dress an’ gait wad lea’e us,
And ev’n Devotion!

Robert Burns has written some good stuff.

Here is an English translation of the quote:

O would some Power the gift to give us
To see ourselves as others see us!
It would from many a blunder free us,
And foolish notion:
What airs in dress and gait would leave us,
And even devotion!

Whatya think?
