The Stumbler

Art is never original. It’s an adaptation.

So, on this blog, I try to put my original voice on unoriginal thoughts, writings, etc.

They’re adaptations.

But this one is not worth adapting. It’s best read as an original, in its entirety.

It’s called the Moral Bucket List, although I prefer the title, “The Stumbler.”


  • Resume Virtues vs Eulogy Virtues.
  • “Wonderful people are made, not born.”
  • What happens when we crash through barriers of fears.

And this:

The stumbler doesn’t build her life by being better than others, but by being better than she used to be.

So true.
