Sometimes you get exactly what you need at just the right time. Me, I was feeling pretty down after the latest twist in my kitchen reno nightmare (water damage from a leaky dishwasher hose after it was serviced due to a different problem caused by the installers of our cabinetry). I won’t go into the gory details details, but lets just say if kitchen renos were Horror movies, mine would do very well at the box office.

Anyway, in the doldrums over more setbacks, I decided that it was time to clear out an inbox of an email account overrun by spam just to feel that there was something orderly about my day. As I waded through the spam bot stomping grounds, I found an email from my aunt with a YouTube link titled, Inspiration.

Have a watch, thinking about the practice, dedication, ups and downs it must have taken Danny MacAskill to get to this level of mastery. Doesn’t it remind you of the writer’s journey?

    LOL, I wouldn’t want to be his mother, either. Or pay his tire bills. But oh how amazing! I showed this to my kids to illustrate anything is possible if you work at it. 🙂

    I can only imagine how long it must have taken him to accomplish those feats. And wouldn’t want to be his mother. How many times did he come home bleeding and/or with broken bones? You got to love the determination, though!

  4. Amazing. 🙂 Thanks for the link.
