I think a lot about linearity and geology. I was thinking about it today in regards to my life, website and designs. Sometimes I wish didn’t take me this long to get where I am.
Even previous work. I wish it was cleaner, neater.
Even my Angel List account. It could it be better. More minimal and to the point.
But then stopped myself. Because as much as I want good taste I realized that what makes life and creative work and story interesting is the laying.
That there has to be entropy, iteration and a history.
A layered structure to create substance.
Some type of topography.
The thing about wanting to emulate successful people or have their life / standard of living is that all you see are the mountain peaks. Stories, creative work and nations and nature wouldn’t be beautiful nor possible without the layering.
