    Hein is a wise dude. I've spent the summer discovering what I can't achieve!


    Sometimes, calling something "impossible" is just a way to keep from injury during the attempts. Sometimes, if you're clumsy, that's probably wise. ;)


    Ow. I has hadache now.


    I love Piet Hein! He's even better in Danish, though (she quipped smugly), just listen to the rhythm of the first 'gruk' in Danish:

    Den der kun tar spøg for spøg
    og alvor kun alvorligt,
    han og hun har faktisk fattet
    begge deler dårligt.

    I've known this by heart from I was about 7 and once made the mistake of trying to get a friend to understand the message. She was not amused. Go figure.


    Well...that last one may as well have been written about me. I'm being totally serious. I hear the first step is admitting what your problem is and fear of trying (for fear of failure) is one of my biggest. I'm working on changing that in the next couple of weeks.
