The Mimosa Piduca plant is that ferny plant that shields itself by curling up when touched by human hands. Who's to say if that is a good or bad thing? What I do know is that the more an artist shies away from mentorship and feedback, in their own way, they are closing up. While artistic guidance may sometimes sting, it's the kind of love we grow to crave, an honest voice in your ear that suggests – you've got this.
