The Joy of Bumbling Along

One of the tool cabinets at jewelry fabrication class

Good Morning, God!

My Jewelry Fabrication class continues. And the Details to be Remembered are now piled up around my ears. I have observed many of the young women in the class taking notes. Smart!

And, I hope, in just a few more classes, to be able to divert enough of my attention from the instructions to be able to write them down.

As with so much of life, the richness of reality far exceeds the capacity of instructions to clarify. It’s a good thing, God, that we are designed to learn by doing — and redoing!

So, every Tuesday morning, I am learning and playing. I still might be a bit too purposeful. But the joy of creating balances my desire to do it “right.”

People who have been doing this for years assure me that every time we do something, it is a “new time.” I saw that when as I was having trouble lighting my blowtorch. The instructor came over and he had trouble, too. He finally went off to get a bigger tip for the torch. It is encouraging to see instructors have difficulties, too.

The good news, God, is that it is all ART! And in Art sometimes our “mistakes” are better than what we intended. Hmm. Now that I think of it, that happens in Science, too! Post-it notes and teflon spring to mind. [Click here for more “accidents”.]

Ah, God, this World of Art is full of surprises and delights — and redeemed accidents. Kind of like us, yes?
