Meditating on intuition…
Intuition is sometimes vague or more or less uncertain. It is something that one tries to fight when wanting to be reasonable.
This struggle in itself might create an interesting substance which later can be applied and used as a motor when reaching out for an inspiration or an idea.Intuition became a source of these pieces of pure improvisation: no plan and no goal.
