It’s a grand thing to get leave to live.*
Some people get one. Most people don’t. But, if you’re reading this, it means that you’ve received more than one, perhaps a countless number of, little breaks.**
We’ve all had at least one big break.
Now it’s up to us to put in some effort and to accept the help of others whenever possible and yet keep moving when we’re on our own:
Nobody’s gonna give you permission. Nobody’s gonna welcome you into the club. Nobody’s gonna pat you on the back and say “well done.” All you can do is keep making the work you want to see in the world.^
