This thing is greater than me

There is a set of creations out there that when you encounter it, you know two things:

a) This thing is great.
b) I have work to do to reach a level where I can appreciate it for what it is.

The decision is whether we are willing to do this work: To learn the context, understand the nuances. Generate a feeling for the milieu in which it is situated.

Often the answer will be no. Life is too short to reach the greatness of everything out there.

When the answer is yes, a strong yes is important.
Not completing this work, is about you. Not the creation.
