Polymath or Dilettante [F]

Ahem… I don’t know where I’m going. Writing. Schooling. Reporting. Working. Living towards… But I know what I want — to write great stories and share a part of me through my creativity, a vision of our world that maybe is inaccessible or considered rare or exotic to others, as any good story or great photograph or painting or beautiful song has the power of inducing — feelings of wanderlust and excitement. I am a writer. Before I am too old to self-motivate, I have to produce a story worthy of your time and will my identity into existence. Only then, I believe, will I find meaning.

The Vitruvian Man (Le proporzioni del corpo umano secondo Vitruvio) by Leonardo da Vinci, 1490

My dream goals: a novel. A feature film. One track played on the radio. A comic book. A photographic series. An epic poem. A handwritten love letter sent halfway around the world. An art exhibit. Many acts of random kindness. A role model. And eventually, a source of income to the ones I care most for. Most of which are all, essentially, mediums for telling stories and inspiring them. I have shared on this blog so many wonderful things from so many wonderful people from around the world, fanning the flames of inspiration; I would very much like to feature on the ethereal timeline of humanity — but I will settle for someone else’s blog — and become one of those everlasting flames.
