growing up

older-small

I won’t be turning 30 until early next year, but the prospect, I’m happy to say, does not sound so scary these days. Not because I’m sure to be on the right track. For to be honest, I don’t know what my future will be made of.

But that’s the whole point. This year is about changing tracks, and exploring new ways, ways to escape a pre-formated, miserable consumer’s life. Of course, uncertainty can be scary – it is, most of the time. But growing up, I finally found out, is not about trying to reduce it at any cost. It is also about learning to deal with it, learning not to let it smother your own growth.

These days, whilst waiting for more paperwork to be fixed, I’ve been sitting at my desk, cutting paper and painting. Not waiting for the perfect moment, but creating anyway. And Socrates, the character I created for our book, has been growing up. So have I.
