Daily post: Practice makes perfect…

What a good thing I don’t want to be perfect at anything! Even the thought of all the practice required has me longing for a nap. I don’t want to be a dancer, a singer, an artist, a doctor, a lawyer or an Indian Chief. Neither do I want to fly a plane, make a killer sponge cake, prove the world is square or win Wimbledon. What a relief!

It’s possible that somewhere back in the mists of time I might have wanted a talent or two – a talent for making money would have been useful – but fish yearning for bicycles has never produced anything but unhappy fish.

It’s wonderful how much you learn as you get older.

    Fascinating. There’s absolutely nothing you’d like to have an innate talent to do well? It’s never too late.

    But then, you do have a talent for writing and perhaps doing one thing very well is enough. Thank you for sharing this today.
