Maybe it’s not prolificness I yearn for at all, but the spirit behind it: the playfulness, the experimentation, the wide-eyedness of it. The willingness to not get things perfectly right, and the openness to try again tomorrow. It’s certainly a lesson my former self is qualified to teach — and I’m happy to learn it more than once.
Thank you so much for writing these thoughtful words and for sharing them. I believe our younger years are brave because our curiosity gives us the ability to understand where we want to grow.
