You can't avoid cringe if you want to create. As soon as you avoid cringe, you're avoiding the vulnerability that comes with creation.
vertical v. horizontal relationships
vertical = judgement

horizontal = equal but not the same

The world is not a collection of things, it is a collection of events. A stone is prototypical ‘thing’: we can ask ourselves where it will be tomorrow. Conversely, a kiss is an 'event’. It makes no sense to ask where the kiss will be tomorrow. The world is made up of networks of kisses, not of stones. On closer inspection, in fact, even the things that are most 'thing-like’ are nothing more than long events.

Nothing you become will disappoint me; I have no preconception that I’d like to see you be or do. I have no desire to foresee you, only to discover you. You can’t disappoint me.
