“Don’t think twice, it’s alright”
Bob Dylan sang in the 60’s.
Creatively speaking he’s right.
Then again he’s Bob Dylan.

Creativity must be captured immediately.
Think twice
And you will end up light years
From your original concept.

Creative people are born not created.
When it comes to writing
I am not one for keeping a notepad by my bed
In case an idea comes to me in the middle of the night.

Despite years of alcohol abuse
I have a pretty good memory.
Any idea thought of during the night
Is my first thought the next day.

Pre-planned creativity doesn’t cut it
And it shows.
It pales into insignificance
when compared to the real deal.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
My main attraction to the arts.
Each piece is open to interpretation.
I enjoy hearing the varying opinions of a piece.

“Don’t think twice” indeed Mister Dylan.
Go ahead and do it.
Transferring your imagination to a visual piece
Is indeed a true talent.

After all, “It’s alright.”
