if you're not failing....

Vis a vis my head:  it seems quite normal, now, thanks, no big deal aside from my whining, chewing on ibuprofen, sleeping with wild dreams.....

A quote I heard recently is "If you're not failing you're innovating very much" -Woody Allen.
WOW! Yes!  You have to be ready to charge right in, fly at it, maybe your idea isn't gonna be that good, but maybe it is....

Example:  I had a dream January 1 that I should put flowers on pots and have been fiddling with it ever since....good or bad, it is fun and worth trying, and I like these new pitchers very much.....have a great Tuesday!

If people could only see a potter’s pile of failed ideas. Of course the journey is so much of the fun of getting anywhere.

I like the pitchers.

So glad you keep on dreaming, Gary!

The willingness to fail is the freedom to explore.
