Do you ever look at something with a pattern and see a flaw, and then that's all you ever see when you look at it? Well that's what happened with our new bathroom rug. One day I looked down and realized one of the black rectangles was solid and didn't have a break in it:

Can you see it? 

Now every time I look at it, I try not to remember the 'mistake'. It might have to be replaced soon.

I do not see the one rectangle as a fault. It is merely the only one that is really all the way up front. Nothing is crossing its lines. The rest is all behind it.
Makes sense now?

If you were REALLy observant you'd have seen that when you bought it. But then maybe you didn't buy it.

One way to look at it is as a fault. I just saw it as symbolism. They are all connected but the one. It participates but doesn't have the same connection to the others. It is above. On top. Like its owner. (smile)

OMG this is going to bug me because I do not see it!

I can see it alright, but it is a nice rug! Maybe you should consider leaving it?

Thank you for your nice comments - for those that can't see it - all the rectangles n the middle are 'linked' - one corner over the next, and one corner under EXCEPT the one on the bottom right - that black 'link' is on top of the grey one. Once my eye saw it, I see the mistake, and try not to think of it.
Outthere - you are very philosophical.
Introverted Art - do you see it now?
Little Treasures - I will leave it, and must just stop thinking about a silly rug - LOL!
Thank you for your comments

Your post made me think of Möbius strips.

This is a great example of "wabi sabi". I have a Japanese friend who told me about this ancient Japanese philosophy wherein imperfection is honored as "flawed beauty", lending interest and fascination to the subject. The acceptance of the flaw is the first step towards Enlightenment. In other words, your rug is perfect as it is!
(I love it!)

Hahaha, I noticed it as soon as I read the title of the post. That would drive me nuts!
