    i hereby resolve
    As i rotate and revolve
    To remember every mistake
    i did happen to make
    So that this i can do
    Make mistakes that are new
    Twould be a sin and shame
    If i remade all the same
    i've got to make some new ones
    Get up off my buns
    Get to breaking new ground
    There is so much around
    And it's always error and trial
    And enjoyment all the while
    To make mistakes i'm not afraid
    i'll make'em until i'm dead
    But between the mistakes you can guess
    i'm making plenty progress

    Yes, to keep retracing old footsteps in past mistakes does seem like such a waste of much needed time. So much truth spoken here.

    Nice drop. Never be afraid of change. That old dog learning new trick saying , has aways been a false statement. Keep flowing. I also learn from others mistakes. If I see another trip, ( thanks for the :help: ) then I won't stumble on the same stone.
