some thoughts

"Humanity has advanced, when it has advanced, not because it has been sober, responsible, and cautious, but because it has been playful, rebellious, and immature."
- Tom Robbins -
"Have no fear of perfection. You'll never reach it."
- Salvador Dali -

I sorta like the second one. Sometimes we want everything to go well in life. When really, when things go nutty, or even irresponsibly, they turn out even better. How many of your nest times have come from things that have gone wrong? Rhona and I consider our first date to be a serious of unfortunate events, starting with her car breaking down, and ending with us getting locked out of our house.

We strive for things to go well. Well, here's a toast to things going wrong. Sometimes horribly wrong, and having it all work out. Horribly well.

This post might seem deep. It isn't. While I have a lot on my mind right now (mostly a deadline for an ad I'm having a really hard time writing), it's more about believing, whole-heartedly, that things will work out. They often do. It's just a question of in what way.
