Thought for the Day

My life is full of mistakes. They're like pebbles
that make a good road.

OOOOOOOOO yes!! I got interested in seeing her work--I'm not familiar with it, and I found an amazing video! She makes me laugh! Her voice says things that mine can never quite find the perfect...and I can point to them and say "this this is part of my insides and my creativity." Thank you for posting!
