    The Spruce Goose didn’t have as many rivets. If you’re making a gift to the gift itself, use less rivets. Your gift will thank you.

    This is an odd one. I thought he was going to get the girl.

    @Tom

    I think the point was “sometimes you don’t get the girl but that’s okay” I suspect the creativity and energy in making something for someone is its own reward. Mind you, I really don’t get interpersonal relationship things.

    It was made out of pine not spruce anyway.

    Creativity needs expression or it will die. It has been snuffed out in most people.

    Very nice advice. Usually I hear successful writers say to write. Write what you know, what you like how you like.

    And here I thought the moral was going to be “Don’t spend so much time making things. Go after the girl, since that’s your dream.” Why would a girl feeding animals want a plane? This seems to contradict most other strips.

    Rolling Stones said it best.
    “You cant always get what you want….but if you try sometimes…you find…..you will get what you need.” He did not get the girl but he got a bigger better plane.

    She likes birds, and he was giving her the chance to fly along with them.

    Actually what he got was the chance to create. I always figured that creating, whether it is a great comic, a flying goose or a so so novelette (myself) is the key.

    @Darwinskeeper

    True…..he got what he needed….which was to create a new plane

    Many authors say simply that they had to write. A woman I knew said that, when she had young children, she got up at 4 am to have writing time before they woke up. I guess many artists have said the same. I know of an inventor who lost his marriage because he couldn’t drag himself out of his workshop.
