Making is all about screwing up.
It's about having the confidence to screw up in increasingly creative ways.
It's the art of getting it wrong with such flair and panache that you can't help but be entertained by your own ineptitude.
It's the ability to foil so many of your own plans that you are left with no option but to stumble into a solution that works.

Even some from the right are onside with Alan Jones and Barnaby Joyce coming out in support
I'm really hoping the government folds on this one but I'm not holding my breath
In the middle of an emotional day, I paused long enough to hear a woman say, “I hope there’s never a day I take the ferry that I don’t pause to say ‘wow’ before getting on.” A good reminder.... Wow.
The world would be a very boring place if everyone followed the same path in life
