I’ve read this twice now. (Thank you, Francesca!) It was too good, too complex and true not to share, especially with other writers/artists/internet dwellers.
But there is a better way forward. Fall in love with things. Try things; dislike some of them. Love people who love things you can’t imagine loving. Be thirsty and brave. Accept that if narrowcasting really is the future, considering what you don’t love to be a threat to what you do is a fool’s errand that will exhaust you and require you to police the joys of others in a way that will distract you from your own.
