3D L-Systems - Image Nº9

I know it is ugly and messed up, just wanted to show it to let clear how difficult it can be to have your software working during the first stage of development. Poor frog. ;-)

How do you tackle your work each day?
Are you scared of the job you find?
Do you grapple the task that comes your way
With a confident, easy mind?
Do you stand right up to the work ahead
Or fearfully pause to view it?
Do you start to toil with a sense of dread
Or feel that you're going to do it?

You can do as much as you think you can,
But you'll never accomplish more;
If you're afraid of yourself, young man,
There's little for you in store.
For failure comes from the inside first,
It's there if we only knew it,
And you can win, though you face the worst,
If you feel that you're going to do it.

Success! It's found in the soul of you,
And not in the realm of luck!
The world will furnish the work to do,
But you must provide the pluck.
You can do whatever you think you can,
It's all in the way you view it.
It's all in the start that you make, young man:
You must feel that you're going to do it.

How do you tackle your work each day?
With confidence clear, or dread?
What to yourself do you stop and say
When a new task lies ahead?
What is the thought that is in your mind?
Is fear ever running through it?
If so, just tackle the next you find
By thinking you're going to do it

Edgar Albert Guest, "How do you tackle your work".

This reminds me of the wonderful imagery in a film called, What Dreams May Come.

Oh, an argentinian, Eugenio Zanetti, was its production designer, meaning, the responsible of the all the visual concept. It is a deep movie.

The image is a beauty!

You surprised me with that. But I'm very glad you like it.

It looks like unknown plants growing up to the edge of the water. Maybe an alien moss. ... I like the poem.:-) I shall try to remember it when feeling overwhelmed by work.
