Happy outcomes are uncommonly common to the curious. Curiosity may have killed the cat, but it has been responsible for birthing a lot of lively art. "How is this going to turn out?" is an essential question that an artist asks. Curiosity tramples drudgery and fires up improvisation. Curiosity sets the hands and mind in motion.

Your Inferior Shadow is a whizbang at throwing obstacles in your way. Funnily, some of the obstacles can be legit and daunting. But once your Shadow knows you will react to obstacles, any obstacle will do. One lady told me she couldn't paint because her laundry wasn't dry yet.

Sometimes I see what I call "The Gratitude Factor." It's an attitude ripe with observation, enthusiasm and appreciation--a daily configuring of life that includes a sense of wonder. These folks don't miss the moving clouds, the sunsets and sunrises, the tiny flowers of the field. Their days are studded with the bright stars of surprise. While it might be easy to call them "blessed," I've figured their attitudes are mainly of their own making. They've taught themselves how to better love the world.

In March 2012, I spent a morning with Robert, his beloved dog Dorothy and his red MG on a quixotic and sophomoric quest to make a viral talking-dog video. Robert figured that smearing peanut butter on Dorothy's gums would get her to mimic speech and we'd then do a clever voice-over. Nothing much happened except that Dorothy got a peanut butter windfall. So the experiment fizzled, but this ancillary GoPro footage from that day turned out to be priceless in ways none of us could have guessed at the time. - Peter Segnitz
