“A step backward, after making a wrong turn, is a step in the right direction.” Kurt Vonnegut

We all make mistakes, whether it’s a cringe worthy perm, going out when we should have stayed in, dating “that” person, spelling a word wrong, clicking send instead of save, having just one more round, or taking advice on COVID-19 from a TV personality/radiologist instead of Dr. Fauci. We’ve all been there, but we don’t have to stay there. Our mistakes can take us over a cliff, or clear a path we hadn’t seen before. Machines don’t have empathy, humor, remorse, or imagination – we do.

“I want to stand as close to the edge as I can without going over. Out on the edge you see all kinds of things you can’t see from the center.” Kurt Vonnegut, Player Piano
