I wish you happiness, pain, and healing, and all the expressions of your art that are in between, beyond, and just ahead of you. And I wish for you to find your genius and know it. From this self-awareness you can continence to attempt the mountain top for the rest of your life. May you never stop seeking the top.
Carry on. Follow your heart. You are young and you have years to figure this out. But keep your career in mind when choosing your paths over the next few years.
"The point is, in the big picture, no one is going to look after your career for you, but you." --from Erin Malone on Boxes and Arrows in 2004
