Following the recent invitation to come up with a cartoon prompted or inspired by a word given to me…my dad gave me the word, “cornucopia”. Clearly , this was a challenge! Thoughts about this were not immediately abundant, that is until I had the idea of illustrating the fantasy of “thoughts on tap”. Phew. This one’s for you, pop. If only we could command the most insightful and cutting edge ideas and cleverest thoughts whenever we needed to – on tap…but then, if we did that, and we knew there was always a solution to a problem a screw turn away, where would the excitement be? Where would the sense of wonder lie in waiting for inspiration to strike? Would it be exhausting or clinical? Abundant mechanical delivery of thoughts and ideas on cue, on demand, to order. No gestation period for concepts to brew and bubble in the melting pot of your mind? Anyway, must stop this flow of nonsense. The tap was on for a minute or two but that’s all I’ve been allowed for now. I’ll enjoy the wait until the next thought comes.
