Let me tell a story. Let me show you what I see, what I dream, where I fall/fail and where it can sometimes hurt. And then let’s talk about how I’ve used languages, where I may have fallen into a couple of hiccups, what makes me write now with caution (which pisses me off) because I am older and younger. Let me tell you a story about a language that relies less on nouns and more verbs and thus, the subject could be read as genderless. Or a language that has no word for skin color. Knowing a little more than what I did when I now do it, the tiny voice says “stop.” It feels so good to make mistakes. I don’t wanna be right. It feels good to give it (what is it anyway?) to the termites.* May I suggest that to bury it far away and let it rot to unearth later or never is ok? Why stop? Who told you to stop? Are you doing enough or too much? Let me show you. Let me not show you.
