Playing around with puppet ideas, it occurs to me that it is very enjoyable to scribble without worrying about result.
I read an article this morning by Tim Harford who has a book out called Adapt: Why Success Always Starts With Failure. He talks of no easy universal solutions to life’s problems; instead “ we must adapt—improvise rather than plan, work from the bottom up rather than the top down, and take baby steps rather than great leaps forward”.
Music to my ears. In my other blog Life and Art, I have frequently mused on connections between creativity, risk, failure etc., and I’m enjoying this opportunity in this project to delve much deeper on the issues. Regardless of where the focus of Harman’s book lies, I am in no doubt that it will be of huge interest to me in my daily fails.
