Sing You Beader, Sing! Oh Good Grief!

Daily Prompt

I took a Yin Yoga class this week….

from a wonderful gal, Alison. If you haven’t tried a Yin class, it is a must do. Each week we set an intention. This week it was Failure. Don’t stop reading, this is really uplifting. At the end of class she read a Lucy monologue from Charlie Brown called Failure Face. I hope you enjoy this as much as I did.

Now Linus, I want you to take a good look at Charlie Brown’s face. Would you please hold still a minute, Charlie Brown, I want Linus to study your face. Now, this is what you call a Failure Face, Linus. Notice how it has failure written all over it. Study it carefully, Linus. You rarely see such a good example. Notice the deep lines, the dull, vacant look in the eyes. Yes, I would say this is one of the finest examples of a Failure Face that you’re liable to see for a long while. You see, said Lucy, you become wiser when you fail at something. Then I must be the smartest kid in the whole world, said Charlie Brown.

I just love this. I was think during class about all the fits and starts of my biz and this just really struck me so I wanted to share this with you in case you are dealing with some failure. Take a good look at it. Learn from it. Gather your tools and move forward. Here’s to all my Twisted Sister Charlie Brown’s. The Smartest Sisters in the World!

When I got home I got my blog assignment for the day and it was to write a blog using the days prompt which was SING.  So since You’re a Good Man Charlie Brown is a musical I thought this could still be my blog today. You know the Killing Two Birds etc.

While driving home from Yin, I was thinking about Charlie Brown and The Peanut’s comic strip and I recalled that I had some vintage peanut pearls somewhere in my stash.  After much rummaging around, (I really have to get more organized!) I made this piece.

Don’t you think it would make a great wedding necklace?
