Rejection and failure are inevitable aspects of being part of the human community. Out of those dashed hopes and smoldering ashes, we hope something fresh and beautiful arises. So, let us take our cue from the band Radiohead, who was asked to compose a theme song for the recent Bond film, Spectre:
“It didn’t work out, but became something of our own, which we love very much.”
Their message — and their creation — seems like the right thing to hear on this first day of 2016. Happy New Year!
