... a little bit of failure can be a good thing. In India, when they weave marriage blankets, they make them perfect until they get to the end, then they put in this little screwed-up thing. They say that little mistake is what lets you in. That's what the Holy Grail myth is about -- somebody with a wound or "mistake" in him. I think you just have to accept that wound because it might contain its own healing factor. Accepting that wound might be the first ingredient in some kind of recipe.
