I approached my life in a very deterministic view and yet lived them the non-deterministic way.
I like it when a plan goes exceedingly well, but I also love novel surprises. This is why watching illustrators or painters draw is always an enjoyable activity to me. They seem to always maintain a vision of the end result in their head and yet are flexible enough to navigate the challenges along the way. Variations are happy accidents. They emerge and are embraced.
In contrast to those artists I'm a coward who stick to the guideline yet improvise a bit too much for my own good.
