    It is funny how one person’s bad is anothers good. I really like the Dancers at Sunset. I have posted stuff that I thought was bad and had people love it. I am coming to the conclusion that it is all not so much bad as not what we had in mind.

      How right you are!

  4. I have a little note pasted to my desk that says, “I have permission to write the worst junk in North America. I give myself permission to write the worst junk in the world. It is okay to write the worst junk in the Universe.” I got the idea years ago from Natalie Goldberg, and if I could just truly internalize that whatever I write or create, it matters not how I judge it, the point is to keep creating… well, enough with the what-ifs. I’m working on it, anyway.

    It’s a great success to allow yourself to post something with which you’re not 100% (or even 70%) satisfied. Congratulations on your courage and creativity!

    • It’s nice to be thought of as courageous…never thought about it that way! Thanks!

    Those are pretty fabulous pieces…and I keep looking to understand more the details. It’s funny how one man’s junk is another man’s treasure…thanks for sharing…because it’s very brave to do so!
