More exeperience will sort that out. Do you always end up looking back on your younger self as naive? Do artists not mature at the same rate as the working class?

I felt like I was getting caught off-guard with everything, all the time. All I wanted was to get ahead of it a little bit. I feel like I’ve just started to figure that out. Sometimes it takes years – or decades, apparently.”
