TYWKIWDBI, “Ripples”

Evolution is a tricky item to articulate. For me, meandering and rippling best characterize the way I evolve over time as they’re both an intentional and serendipitous process — one activity inspiring and feeding another, yet not one thing being conscious of the other. The “meandering” is the serendipity; the “rippling” is the intention. If one is to grow, whether by meandering, by rippling, or by intending, one must diverge at critical and unexpected places. 

Write something else. Get uncomfortable. Try and err. If you ripple a little, you will evolve a little. If you ripple a lot, you could evolve a lot.
