Slipping this new one under the wire... The small bubbles in the central current come from The Great Women Cartoonists by Trina Robbins. They're in chronological order from 1902 in lower left to 2001 at upper right. The rest of the bubbles are just... from everywhere.
For the comix geeks among you (and more power to you!), there is one item that's technically not a speech bubble, but text on a flash panel.

Angie's already seen this one: in fact, she's got it. I sent it to her early in our intermittent postcard correspondence. (By the way, thanks for the great Hallowe'en card, Ange!)
Samuel Beckett provides the title. The full quotation, I believe from Molloy, is: "Try. Fail. Try again. Fail again. Fail better." "Failing better" is a concept I often think about when I'm making collages, since I'm a retired doctor who's never had an art class.
I would very much like to make a new one for this theme, but my energy is flagging. Maybe Wednesday morning?
