failure into flow ...

defining moments...
This is the second piece I created, the first piece did not go as I expected and I spent a great deal of time shaping it.  I thought what a waste of time and also thought it was a terrible failure.  Then I realized that during all of the time I spent creating it, somehow my energy was there in the piece. And I was not sure what it was exactly, but there was something about it that I liked, as terrible as is was aesthetically.  When my daughter came home from school, I told her this was not my failure, but my "not yet".  My failure would have been if I stopped with my first attempt, then my second piece would have never happened.  And I could not have created the flow in the second piece, had I not struggled with the first.  Maybe I will come back and post a picture of my first piece for you to see too.
