Eloquence isn’t a natural habit of mind. Especially when I’m trying to put thoughts into words in a hurry, try to keep the shape of their meaning as well as convey the reasons and motivation behind it, etc etc. Whatever. I’m not a clever-type person.
But even I know that form follows function. It ain’t fucking hard. Make something that works, then make it pretty. You need to build the wheel before you start to build a better one. Jeez. And then when someone improves on function? Don’t shut them out because you’re scared of the change that might represent.
