I guess I am old fashioned. When I saw a button that said “Rate as Mature” my mind went to ‘refined and polished’ instead of ‘immature and crude’.

Our workmanship should improve with age, and our contributions to the world could be more meaningful and beneficial. So I hope to mature as in ‘more fully ripe with rich flavor’, instead of ‘nearly rotten’, as I grow more experienced in my work.

Which reminds me of a conversation I had during a portfolio review recently:
“You seem very proud of your work.”

“If I was not, you wouldn’t be looking at it yet.”
