dare to be dreadful

I don't know who said that. But it's really good and it's my latest motto, especially when it comes to writing. To help combat that enemy that is always creeping up on you trying to stop you live your life (or write your story)--the deadly perfectionism.

And here's what some clever people had to say about it:

"Get it down. Take chances. It may be bad, but it's the only way you can do anything really good." William Faulkner (1897-1962)

"Anything worth doing is worth doing badly." G K Chesterton (1874-1936) (seen above looking rather imposing and very much like someone not to be messed with -- so who am I to argue?)

Young children, of course, don't worry about any such nonsense. They just run outside and play.

I guess they know that's their parents' job--to take care of them. So they're free to run and play. Hmm. I guess maybe I don't need to worry, either... "Your Heavenly Father knows that you need all these things..."

OK. Forget perfect. Time to go and play...

handbag toast

Here's Ellie (aka The Beautiful Princess Eleanor) with her lovely Handbag Toast she made one morning.

It's certainly quite the most Fashionable Fabulous Famous Toast I've ever seen.

What a shame to eat it. And not walk about with it on your arm being a lady and wondering where to go.

Actually, I don't see why not. When you're at your next Important Meeting to discuss Important Things with Important People, you might well consider taking along your Handbag Toast to keep things unusual and surprising. What could be the harm? It would certainly keep everyone on their toes and off balance which always works to your advantage.

(So long as it doesn't rain because then of course you'd have Handbag Soggy Toast on your hands and that, as everyone knows, never helped anyone.)
