Q. Where do you get your ideas from?
A. Those moments when you can’t sleep because your mind is whirring. You can be creative at any time. Your hands don’t have to be doing, because your mind is.
This is the essence of a conversation I heard this morning on BBC London with the wonderful Jeni Barnett. The two creative people were not fine artists or writers: they were foodies. One used tapas as his outlet and the other expressed himself in chocolate.
It reminded me, on those days where you feel like you’ve achieved nothing, although today my page may be empty, my mind isn’t. Honestly! It also made me remember that you can express your creativity though any medium and food is a fabulous one.
