Photographs and a few words

Is it possible to be 'more perfect' ?
We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.
-preamble to the Constitution of the United States of America
I live in a small town where a large percentage of the population seem to think that life is perfectible. Unfortunately, this leads to a lot of anger and unhappiness. I think life is already perfect, but I'm just too ignorant to see it. I'm a bit unhappy about my ignorance, but I live in the hope that with time and practice my ignorance will diminish.

"Both formerly & now, it is only stress that I describe, and the cessation of stress."
