I had been talking to him. About his new approach -- the one that was all about simplification, about doing less, about cutting out the extraneous.
That's when he said, Maryam, maybe you should think about simplifying.
That's when I said, Oh no, I'm not about doing less, I'm about doing more.
I want to add, not subtract.
I'm a maximalist, not a minimalist.
My brain stays up at night whirring with ideas about projects to try, ventures to take on, things to make or do or be. I want it all, you see.
Life -- it goes by so quickly, doesn't it? Are you getting enough of it?
