It’s not too late.

What you’re feeling.

It’s not your ego.

You’re yearning for a more creative life.

Your dreams matter.

Nothing is too petty, too silly, too stupid, or too weird.

Do what you love.

What will family and friends think?

Let them think what they want.

Think mystery, not mastery.

In mastery, you do what you’re told.

Like reading a dull but recommended critical book.

Mastery numb us out, turn us off and tune us out.

In a mystery, you explore what interests you.

You do what intrigues you.

A mystery can be very simple: if I drive this road, not my usual road, what will I see?
