There is more to the projects I take on than entertainment. It is an innate desire to produce something. Maybe it’s the survival instinct in all of us — we believe we can leave a legacy, and survive just a bit longer. We want to be remembered by the things we create; a proliferation of ourselves. And hopefully it is good enough to serve as an eternal thumbprint of our lives.
I think mine are all still childish. I play with motorcycles, build rayguns, repurpose furniture. Some people create art, or businesses. Others children and relationships and really, really good conversations. And we all love doing it. It doubles as a sense of purpose.
And isn’t that what we all want? To belong?
