I finally did it!

I've been talking for months about The Question of the Day, and how I think it's time to let it go... Well, today was the day. I asked the Fortune Teller (see bottom of this page), and she said "Absolutely!" so how could I go wrong with that great advice?

I am planning to gradually import the questions and the answers that I think are interesting and intriguing. I think it will be fun to revisit them... see how far we've come in the last year.

Also, I think it would be nice to take a moment of silence as we visit The Idea Cemetery where The
Question of the Day now gently rests.

In case you can't read the small print, this is what the letter says:

Dear Mr. --,

It is with deep sadness that we acknowledge the death of your idea. Beloved ideas are often torn from this world far too soon, and whether these unexpected farewells are at the behest of consultants, creative directors or customers, the pain is always real.

Perhaps your grief will be easier to bear if you know that others share in it -thousands of ideas die each day. Join our large, grieving community at and commiserate with friends over the grandeur of your idea. To find peace, please use the enclosed memorial park, which will make your desktop a place of solemn reflection.

You’ll realise how good it feels to let go. Wonderful days with beautiful new ideas lie before you. Our online catalogue 'One Life' will show you the latest and most important visual trends and will inspire you to fresh, stunning ideas.

With best wishes for your creative future,

Horst Zsifkovits
Vice President of Sales
Central and Northern Europe

I really like the idea of a grave yard for ideas. I know that if my ideas that I have had over my few centuries of life where all put together in a graveyard. Whew that would be one big graveyard. Even worse would be a grave yard for all the brain cells I have killed by alcohol. What about the brain cells that have died of boredom while I was at work. O the humanity of it all, the waste of such unlimited potential. Who cares if those brain cells where drunk when they died of boredom. They may have sobered up some time, they had a right to live to didn't they. I really should check with the ACLU about this. Yeah!!!!

What I think is important, for me anyway, is to acknowledge that not all ideas are going to "live to see the day"... if you know what I mean. That it's ok to say "good by old friend."

I agree, sometimes you just gotta let it go.
