Project LV One – Day 180 – A bibbly bobbly day

Female Face - Line Drawn

We all have them I know but it just seems that the older you get the more frequent are the bibbly bobbly days.  If you went to your Doctor and said that you were feeling bibbly bobbly he/she would no doubt show you the door.  But we all have them when something is not right but nothing at all to worry about.  Another way to describe the feeling is that you got out of the wrong side of the bed.  The great thing about these days is that the pass and I feel a whole lot better once they do.

Woman - Ink Drawing

I was listening to a radio programme this morning about Albrecht Dürer and how he has not been bettered by engraver since he died.  However, his talent was aided by where he was brought up in Nuremberg where there was a tradition of metal working and clock making – all the skills required to make engravings – along with prodigious talent of course.  At the same time I have started to read there biography of Steve Jobs and again circumstances aided his rise as he was brought up in the middle of burgeoning electronic industry in California.  Which both these ideas floating around in my head I wondered how many other Dürers or Jobs there might have been in history who were not born in the right place at the right time.  We will never know.
