Dear El Gorto,
Sometimes I see something and think I could have done that, but I didn’t. How do we know the difference between a good idea and a pipe dream?
Genius doesn’t come often. Closest I ever got to genius was in 1978, was when my friend C.S. talked his dad into xeriscaping their yard so he would not have to mow the lawn that summer.
Stay away from the pipe and don’t beat yourself up.
