the vicissitudes of life

 

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Too Big To Fail.”
“Tell us about something you would attempt if you were guaranteed not to fail (and tell us why you haven’t tried it yet).”

Giving up. Abandoning.
I haven’t quite given up yet. If I did, I wouldn’t be here today.

Beavers (the brown color of “beaver” comes from their fur color) are known as hard-workers and builders, and associated with the saying of “never give up.”

「七転び八起き」
“Fall seven times, get up eight.” ~ Japanese Proverb

  1. The worst thing is to never try and never know whether or not you could have succeeded. Don’t die with your music still locked inside you!

    I love that leaf! Some blog I read recently said “failure is not getting up again”. I love that proverb. It says it in a more Zen way 🙂
