SummerQuest 16

Being a hero does not mean you don't make mistakes. Being heroic means you learn from your mistakes. Your quest is to finish this sentence: "If only I'd known...." Your challenge is to communicate something you've learned on your epic journey. Perhaps you should write a letter to someone, or put your insights into words with a story, a song or a poem, or into a journal. If appropriate, you could put it on Twitter, Facebook, or simply write a few words in the comments below. Five comments on this final post will unlock the whole picture!


  1. If only I'd known... last summer how much fun it could be to volunteer at the library for Summer Reading I would have done it back then. Last year I was afraid it would be to hut to walk everyday to the library but this year, thanks to my boyfriend he made it bareable by giving me rides. And thanks to everyone else for making it enjoyable. I can't beleive its almost over, its been a great summer and here's hoping I get to continue doing what I've come to love doing, reading and volunteering at the library. Thank you all.

  2. Thanks for your kind words, Shell! We've all been so inspired by your creativity and willingness to share your creations with the library community. Your time and hard work are appreciated, and we can't wait to see what you come up with next!


  3. If only I'd known....... The hike was gonna break my toes, I would have never gone.

    1. Ouch, Swagg Master, I hope they were only metaphorically broken!


  4. If only I'd known how much easier my hair is to deal with when cut short. I'd have done it years ago!

    1. That's a very Tucsonan realization, Anon! Thanks for participating in SummerQuest. Your comment unlocked the FINAL image, as well! Yay!
