What would you do with your life if you knew you would not fail?
"Very good question: Be an artist, an actress, write a book, climb Everest just for the hell of it, travel around the world and learn all the languages. It's quite fun to fantasize about and see where your imagination could take you. But in the end, taking a risk is a huge part of the satisfaction of success. If there is no risk of failure, there is no real joy in success. They say in life that we must enjoy the path, not the destination. Life would be so dull, if we knew exactly how the journey would go and where we would end up. So I'd rather enjoy the risk as well as success along the way"
When I started this blog in May 2007, it was for the sole purpose of staying in touch with friends and family while we traveled to Europe for three months. I am still staying in touch. "Traveller's Joy" clematis vitalba: Wildflower found throughout southwest Europe/Africa. Used for medicinal purposes and found "climbing and covering" the roadsides of Europe.
We spend January 1 walking through our lives, room by room, drawing up a list of work to be done, cracks to be patched. Maybe this year, to balance the list, we ought to walk through the rooms of our lives... not looking for flaws, but for potential. ~Ellen Goodman
