Let me belatedly explain this. As a kid, I did great impressions of people and could make sound effects like a pro. Although I can still do those things, now I prefer to eschew imitating other people in favor of creating a better version of myself. I try to use the same focus, multi-sensory memory, and creative capacity to both hone my 'self' to its best possible incarnation, to take it beyond what it once was and beyond what I once hoped it could be. This, being a grandly difficult and time-consuming venture, I can claim no better expertise or success than the next person. But it's a good goal, I feel.
