My daughter told me about how she was learning about an artist who hated one of his paintings so much, he covered it in paint so he could start again from scratch. But in doing this, the effect of all the different colours was one of the most beautiful things he’d ever seen, so he kept it how it was.
I said to her “That’s how I feel about you darling.”
“I’m the most beautiful thing you’ve ever seen?” she replied.
“Yes” I said. “But more importantly… You were an accident.”
