One thing is certain- Edison would have most definitely taken credit for it- as he did for a lot of other people's work.

This post - and "A Picture A Day (PAD and PAW)" - TOP stuff! No pun. But... yes, TOP stuff.

It's nice to get some rays of sunlight through my mind to light up those dormant spaces that need the odd kick in the pants.

Well done that man!

Maharishi Mahesh Yogi used to say: "See the job, do the job. Stay out of the misery."

As a guiding principle for right living, it has served me well for fifty years

I have also heard that genius is 10% inspiration and 90% perspiration.

I was lucky enough to do a week-long workshop with Trent Parke in 2012 and his advice was similar to David Vestal’s but expressed in a suitably Australian vernacular: “Shoot the shit out of it!”

Henry Ford said:
"If you think you can or think you can't.
You're right"
Or something to that effect.

As it says in the Bible, "Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with your might."

Torpor and sloth, torpor and sloth,
These are the cooks that unseason the broth.
Slothor and torp, slothor and torp
The directest of bee-line ambitions can warp.
He who is slothic, he who is torporal,
Will not be promoted to sergeant or corporal.
No torporer drowsy, no comatose slother
Will make a good banker, not even an author.

-- Ogden Nash
