Unrelenting Quality Control

You know what makes someone a great artist?  One of the qualities is that of understanding yourself, above all else.  Not in a narcissistic way but a deep down this is who I am way.  And trusting your instincts, not unlike trusting the spirit. I am convinced that they do go hand in hand; do not lean on the arm of flesh.  This is one of Kurt's great gifts.  One, I admit, I have always envied.  He never gives in or compromises because of lack of time and energy.  This is his approach to creating and better yet, this is his approach to God:

O Lord, I have trusted in thee and I will trust in thee forever. I will not put my trust in the arm of flesh; for I know that cursed is he that putteth his trust in the arms of flesh. Yea, cursed is he that putteth his trust in man or maketh flesh his arm.

Happy Birthday, Kurt.  Thank you for your forever example.  I love you, always will.

What a perfect way to describe dad--one of my favorite things about him, too.
