This Tom Yorke quote be hitting just right on the optimistic desire to create for the sake of creating, especially with others. At least that's my take away.
"The nature of being a songwriter, or a painter, or whatever, is to retain a beginner’s mind. The search is the point. The flailing around is the point. The process is the point. I like being given material and maybe finding a narrative that someone else doesn’t see."
