I was reading about audacious ideas. And I was thinking about youth. And I was wondering if the brightness of youth might be applied to life after one is no longer young. You can still think young thoughts. And can you combine it to more mature skill? I was thinking about the scattered but happy ideas I had about art as a girl. Was wondering what if I had taken a different path. There are other sorts of art I might have made, other threads I might have followed than the ones I did. Are any of those avenues still open?
Can you look at the world in a bright young way and make things as though anything were possible? And yet have a mature skill? Is it a bright dream? Is it an ambition? Or is it a yen for a new thing?
