Let's make beautiful things out of our mistakes

*Sometimes I just want to destroy myself--
what do I do with that?

*give in, don't give in, give in, don't give in...

*Brian Andreas' Story of the Day:

They left me
with your shadow,
saying things like
Life is not fair

& I believed them
for a long time.

But today,
I remembered
the way you laughed
& the heat
of your hand
in mine

& I knew that
life is more fair
than we can
ever imagine
we are there to live it

*Don’t worry about mistakes. Making things out of mistakes, that’s creativity. --Peter Max
