Uncertainty is hard-wired into the creative experience.
Make full use of the tools available to you.

"A life should try whatever it is it wants to try."
Settle in and make peace with the necessary background work.
There may be no more important effort than to contribute a voice to the vital issues of our time.
Multiple directions might, over the course of time, be an integral part of the same journey.
