How to fix mistakes

Sometimes when I paint or draw and make a mistake my left hand twitches as if it’s pressing CMD+Z … (Jonathan Zawada)

There are days when all the mistakes you ever made get together for a reunion, reminding you how angry, how bad, how stupid, how unworthy, how pathetic you are.

There’s so much you regret — and so little you can do about it.

In the world of computer games, we learn that it’s okay to die again and again — because we get to take up new lives, one after another, again and again.

In the real world, there is no CMD+Z.
