Thought on seeing a 13-year-old musician at a festival

I spent a lot of the time at 30 wishing that I'd realized, at 13, that all of the waiting and working I was doing to get to being an adult could have been far more meaningful if I'd planned well, at 13, for being 16. That would, of course, have been impossible with a 13-year-old's understanding--or, at least, with my own level of understanding at that age.

If life isn't over at 40, then perhaps I should spend a lot of this year working on who I'd like to be in three years.
