The Perfection of the Circle

Writers search out the infinite. At least they ought to since this is where perfection lies. Perfection of the craft, perfection of the art, perfection of truth. A perfect short story, a perfect poem…

Of course the infinite is unattainable but if we make do with the finite, mediocrity rears its ugly head.

Angela Carter said, “My anatomy is only part of an infinitely complex organisation, my self.”

We seek to discover our infinitely complex relationship to this infinitely complex universe. We must think the unthinkable. We must write the unwriteable.

How many sides has a circle? The inevitable response: two, the inside and the outside. Well Dead Beat says no, a circle has an infinite number of sides.

Get your pens out and draw that circle.
