So, the end always comes.
In the end. Creation is fun and exciting, and at the same time draining and difficult. The end of every creative effort is bittersweet, as it is with this wrapping up of collaborating with Lillian. And I know it’s not really the end, since Lillian will be soldiering forward with her project, trying to animate it to life. It’s also not really the end because of things I’ve learned with this effort. The dynamic with Lillian has been different from my normal, so I’ll be carrying those lessons with me as I continue to work with folks in my semi-retired way, no longer “the boss” but rather the advisor, the guide.
But for now, this chapter closes.
