little battles.


“you never make
exactly what you want to make.
when you look at a finished piece of work,
you never see everything
that’s gone into getting it there.
most of what [able] designs isn’t seen
and he’s only just learnt
to come to terms with that.
but now he views everything he’s done
as a prototype for what’s to come.
he never expects he’s going
to make the final thing,
just the next thing.
he says the little battles are temporary.”

ps – inspired by this and this, i’ve convinced pastme to email futureme.
