Technique and Inspiration

Over the years when I come across statements, truths ,opinions etc. that resonate with me I write them down in my journals. Some are attributable, some I don't know where they came from so thanks to those that wrote the original words . "Develop an infallible technique and put yourself at the mercy of inspiration '

This remains a mantra for me. I still find flaws and imperfections in my technique and the desire to improve is still strong but Infallibility is always out of reach, inspiration on the other hand is an elusive partner that cannot be bidden or controlled.
