From a conversation with my mentor
Tag Archives: advice
I’m one of those lucky people who have a mentor or two – human ones, not the anteater, I mean.
A life’s achievement
[Soo: Do you think I’ll ever achieve anything in my life?
Anteater: Hmm. Why don’t you? Why doesn’t everybody?]
I came across this drawing from a late-2015 sketchbook called Cabbage Lady. (Yes, I name each sketchbook.)
I don’t recall the context, but in those days I was taking a lot of Uber rides to work.
Some people are happy with their small wins.
The sooner you realize the extent of your life the happier you’ll be.

But anyway instead I read Elmer.
And I’m still on the plateau.
