Yup, Beckett's still right:
"Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail better."
Sometimes it's all we can do.
So my Thanksgiving will be small and local. Going nowhere, but organic, and with pinecone turkeys.
Thank you to The Compassionate Instinct for better food choices and to The Georges & The Jewels (Jane Smiley, YA horse novel) for the inspiration to get crafty.
I do not know how to calibrate cosmic magic, but I must say that Goethe may be right as well: When we act openheartedly and with courage, the universe steps up to meet us.
I offer gratitude to all those who've tuned in here, even for a moment. Please come back, and please help me to create a voice here that elevates you, that compells you to give thanks and to fail better.
Tell me what you need, and I'll do my best to deliver it. No doubt I'll fail, but rest assured: every day I'll fail better.
