Last week, I published Wednesday Wisdom as an experiment. I tried to include a quote from Alice Walker and a photo. I seem to be the only person who received the imbedded photo. I hope the quotation and photo actually appear at the top of this post. Just in case, the relevant quotation is: “Much of the satisfying work of life begins as an experiment; having learned this, no experiment is ever quite a failure.”
In light of Walker’s wisdom, my experimental Wednesday Wisdom post did not quite fail. True, it did not do what I hoped for. Some readers received garbled computer text, others received a box with a question mark or an X. But it was not a total failure because it showed me that what I tried didn’t work, and it provided the impetus for me to keep learning and experimenting. Yippee! As Marshall McLuhan says, “The medium is the message.”
This post is another experiment. I hope the image I created appears this time. If it does, this will have been a BIG step for Barbara.
Please, please, send me a comment or email letting me know if your version of this blog post includes an image of the Walker quotation and a young girl at a piano. As far as I can tell, it will, but then, I thought it would last time, too. Thank you.
Look for another Wednesday Wisdom this week. I will publish longer posts about every two weeks.
