Isn't it great when you stumble across a quote that makes you draw breath! Like the one by William Morris I found when I was looking for something else. This is what he said:
"If a chap can't compose an epic poem while he's weaving tapestry he had better shut up."
It's the sheer, outrageous, well-of-course-we're-creative-don't-make-a-fuss-just-get-on-with-it-ness of it that makes me want to cheer. Yes - we are meant to be creative - it's the way we're built - stop talking about it and getting doing it!
Well, I talk about it lots - I'm talking about it now! And I spent some time looking at Google Images of gorgeous Morris tapestries. To be fair, I should also spend some time checking out the guy's poetry (which I don't know at all) but you know what - I don't think I will. I think I'll just go and get on!
Does anybody out there have any sayings about this strange job of ours that made them blink? I'd love to hear them!
P.S. I got the picture of the Morris tapestry from a site called www.buzzle.com - thanks for it!
