On the evolution of a [birdie] style

Someone asked me the other day about birdies, and why I haven’t been sharing them as frequently as I once did.1 It was implied that perhaps I haven’t been making birdies like I used to. Tout au contraire.

When I made this birdie, a lot of people said it was the best one yet.

In fact, I’ve made so many birdies that I’ve avoided sharing them, to forestall the appearance of being always on holiday. And there has been a lot of experimentation with the birdie dance. I’m reminded of Dali:

Have no fear of perfection – you’ll never reach it.

So with Dali as an inspiration, my birdie dance has been evolving. It’s always been exuberant. Spontaneous. To the essence. Of the exuberance. The essence of the exuberance. Which reminds me of another Dali quote.

What is important is to spread confusion, not eliminate it.

And one more.

A true artist is not one who is inspired, but one who inspires others.
