Do we not all agree to call rapid thought and noble impulse by the name of inspiration?
Thinking of ideas and themes and threads to investigate and research is an intriguing process. My mind wanders, well, the motion and process of thought is less of a wander and more like a fairground ride I saw last week. ‘The Octopus’, spinning, reeling, arms flung out, then pulled back in, jerky, weaving, out of control. Passengers with eyes firmly shut, some screaming, some laughing, others just stare, counting the seconds until they can escape.
Rapid thoughts and flickering impulses which have to be nurtured and pruned and trained. Scary.
