don’t become all at once. You
want to be the Big Bang, you
want to be the perfect you now
so that you can get on with living.
Growing is a chore, but trees don’t
get their rings by exploding out of
the ground all haphazard and
towering. People are mayflies, the
truth is our whole lives are about
becoming and once we have
become it’s just about over. Don’t
throw away the years in the dirt;
everything extravagant has
started out small."
