I am grateful that my horizons were not narrowed at the outset.
I have a particular affliction. I am unable to say a word I can't spell.
Problems arise in that one has to find a balance between what people need from you and what you need for yourself.
If you send up a weather vane or put your thumb up in the air every time you want to do something different, to find out what people are going to think about it, you're going to limit yourself. That's a very strange way to live.
