A Note on Failure – July 2016 Newsletter

Screen Shot 2016-06-20 at 1.02.59 PMThere have been many times in my life that I have failed. I failed a test in my senior year of high school, dropping me from the salutatorian to third in the class. (I really wanted to give that salutatorian speech at our graduation ceremony.) I bombed an interview for a $32,000 scholarship that would have made college much cheaper. I failed as an artist, I’ve been passed over for countless jobs, I failed my first pet by giving her away because I was an awful pet mother.

I continue to fail, in small ways and in large ways, every day. I burn toast. I leave our new pup alone so that he sneaks into the garage and eats all the cat food (yes, we got a new dog! That’s him in the photo above). I flub my words teaching classes. I pick stupid fights with my husband.To read the rest of this post, please click here. I send out newsletters once a month and differentiate it from my blog by adding in schedule changes, mention upcoming events, and show you new artwork.
