In this episode of Vernacular, we discuss the fact that all human beings fall short of perfection and yet we want to be perfect in some or all areas of our lives. What does it mean to live a fully human life and accept imperfection? How do we balance a desire to better ourselves with the importance of finding genuine contentment with our failures and possibly even celebrating our imperfections? What is the relationship between beauty and human imperfection? We relate these questions to a short story, movie, and book as well as real life--all in under 20 minutes!
