steps that needed to be taken before that leap.
But then, that's how I roll ;-)
Never having the patience to follow directions, I
ended up in the swamps more often than once.
And if I ever decide to train for a climb on Mount
Everest, you can be sure that just before the peak of the mountain,
I'll realize that I forgot my Oxygen bottles...
It has nothing to do with a learning curve (mine's a
double helix anyways), but it is a trait that I was born with.
In short: I was planning ahead for the museum, but
in the meantime I was running out of funds to work on the necklace and
keep it going.
Count me in as one of the many people who are trying
their luck with crowd funding.
Not that I need a fortune to continue, but my own
resources for material have dried out. But I am determined to build that museum, so
you can actually visit and see the entire Neverending Necklace and
pass along its meaning."
