act human once in awhile

(no subject)

This week, Rob tells the Gemini:

"Lord, grant that I may always desire more than I can accomplish," prayed Michelangelo. He exulted in the feeling of having too much to express. He thrived on the stimulus of his delicious frustration, and used the inspiring sting of his nagging inadequacy as a fuel for his boundless creativity. Are you willing to experiment with this approach, Gemini? Do you have the nerve to love what's imperfect about your life? Are you brave enough to laugh at the probability that your yearning will never be completely fulfilled?

I guess I'm not. My usual problem is that I just don't have enough stuff that I *want* much but haven't fulfilled. Lots of things that would be nice, and that I wouldn't object to having, but not much that I really seriously want.
