The idea of having talent, or not, has come up again. Is that what drives me to create? Do I need talent first before I create? I don’t believe so. It is the compelling desire to move something from here to there, to arrange and re-arrange, whether this is in the garden, the lounge room, the canvas, or the mosaic pieces (even when they are glued I can unglue them you know!).
Each movement is an act of creation and re-creation. Each time the imagination is stimulated which means you see something in a new light, a new way, surprised that it was there all along. Ah – but you had to want to move something in the first place – talent comes with many moves.
