It is important to learn or be aware of facts, myths and animals sometimes. For me, they can be the seed of an idea, be translated, wooed away from their natural habitat, into a context which may provide a different reading or understanding. They can act like the punchline of a serious joke. Sometimes I don’t need a punchline.
If I am to continue to work in this vein then I will try or not try, to study, read and learn stuff. Stuff which may need fertilising to grow into a nice plant art joke serious dark chocolate bar dream.
