This blog is all about celebrating those unpredictable moments: unintended, quite by accident, or just plain mistakes. They’re bound to happen.
Some examples of Bumbles:
- Burning Ramen
This qualifies as a Bumble, although technically it’s just a re-interpretation of directions is all. I’m sure it’s happened to you, right?
- “Washing” your clothes in the dryer with powdered detergent.
I rate this Bumble as an extraordinary achievement as someone, who shall remain nameless, did this for not one load, but three loads. Well done!
- It’s also that absent-minded moment when you put the powdered sugar in the freezer.
By definition a Bumble is a:
verb (used without object), bumbled, bumbling: to bungle or blunder awkwardly; muddle.
noun: an awkward blunder.
On a deeper level, it’s not only an interpretation of life’s experiences, it’s a life philosophy. To make mistakes is to take chances, to explore, to test the limits. So, hopefully Bumbles happen on a regular basis. Here, I will celebrate them all. I will attempt to uncover life’s many oddities, quirks, snags, surprises, mishaps, and yes…missteps, both physical and mental. It is me, soul-searching and marveling at the many mysteries of life, in my search for answers and for the truth.
Make no mistake: The truth is in here.
I will also write fiction, because I like to create, and whatever other thoughts I can put on the page, to untangle and to make sense of it all.
…Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. — Neil Gaiman
I wish an immense amount of mistake-making Bumbles in your life. Bumble onward!
