It does not matter how slowly you go, so long as you do not stop ~ Confucius
Athough the TVR breeding this year falls short of my expectations, I find solace in having my TVR bloodline getting more stable over the years as more fishes in the spawns are converging to the traits I desire. The feeling of accomplishment as I reminisce about those earlier years of trial and error, learning the ropes and building the skills and knowledge step-by-step from basics.
In fact, many wonderful things in life cannot be achieved in haste: trust, integrity, friendship, love and skills would have to be nurtured and mature through the test of time... I feel more confident now and fantasize about some interesting plans for my TVR in the following years... but before that, I must survive the pile of work from my day job.
