I stood up and gave a Thanksgiving speech at the age of 6 that floored everyone in the room, and I don’t remember it, at least accurately, and the family still talks about it to this day. You might say it was an immortal moment in my childhood.
And since my family have always spoken and joked about it lovingly and for years challenged me to “one up it.” You know, “do it better,” and that will never happen and I’ll tell you why: I could give a speech that’s better and they’ll never hear it as being better.
The spontaneous nature of creation that is completely “in the moment” has a great magic to it that can’t be replicated (this is common with children as they don’t have self judgment yet). As adults we still do it all the time in conversations, problem solving, and decision making, but to stand on a stage, kind of unaware, that’s another thing.
The very act of trying to replicate it is futile because no matter how good it is, it won’t be the original (I would have to be 6 again).
The solution is to go somewhere else and make something entirely new.
