Ugly moments

Garlic

Some wise person once said to me that every project goes through its ugly stage. The ugly stage is that period of half developed adolescence when elements are uncoordinated and not quite in proportion to the rest. Pimply, squeaking to be heard, only a mother could love. Eventually, most projects grow out of that stage. I wish I could remember who it was that told me this, because this has come in handy more than once.

  2. Love the garlic! I totally agree with this and need to remember it. I tend to abandon ideas that never get a chance to be worked out.
